Test suite regression in 3.14: Scenario: I am notified when Additional Software fails to install a package
Spotted in Jenkins but also reproduced locally with

Looking at the video, it seems that the notification does appear, before the whole screen flashes to black and gets back without the notification.
See the three attached screenshots for reference.

I can’t find this failure on https://jenkins.tails.boum.org/view/RM/job/test_Tails_ISO_stable/, neither around the time this bug was filed, nor in the last ~2 weeks. So this seems to be a test suite fragility issue rather than a regression.

I’m pretty sure that’s Bug #11188 i.e. a bug in topIcons (that’s supposedly been at least partly fixed in Buster IIRC), so I don’t think there’s anything we can do here, that’s not covered by Bug #8309 already, so I’m closing this ticket as a duplicate. Please reopen, attaching the debug log and the Journal, if I guessed wrong :)
