Bug Description


Please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MIRTeam/Exceptions/OEM and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/OEMMeta for details.


 1. Upgrade path: Users will be upgrading from a package in the associated OEM archive, not the Ubuntu archive.
 2. The background and impact of the situation for this change, and it's impact.


 1. Test that `ubuntu-drivers list-oem` lists the meta-package on the relevant hardware
 2. Test that fully installing the meta-package (upgrading to the OEM archive if relevant) works properly on the hardware
 3. Do an offline install. Boot the system. Run update-manager. Check that an upgrade to the OEM package is offered and that it completes successfully and the hardware works properly.

[Regression Potential]

Most potential regressions will live in the package set that will be installed via dependency of this package, which live in OEM archive (outside of Ubuntu) and control by OEM team. OEM team and other corresponding team need take responsibility of those dependency installed.

[When switching kernel flavour] Check that the new kernel flavour works on the target platform.

This is a meta package for https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MIRTeam/Exceptions/OEM that means the package doesn't exist in Debian or Ubuntu archive yet.
The source code of the oem-somerville-gendry-meta for focal:
    git clone -b gendry-focal-ubuntu https://git.launchpad.net/~oem-solutions-engineers/pc-enablement/+git/oem-somerville-projects-meta

We want to improve the hardware support for some Dell platforms.

No CVE/known security issue.

[Quality assurance]
I have used ppa:oem-solutions-engineers/oem-projects-meta to check this package on some Dell platforms.
oem-somerville-gendry-meta will be upgraded to 20.04ubuntu1 or latest version from OEM archive.

It only depends on ubuntu-oem-keyring.

[Standards compliance]
This package should have met all requirements of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MIRTeam/Exceptions/OEM.

Canonical OEM Enablement Team will take care of the maintenance.

[Background information]
Please check https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MIRTeam/Exceptions/OEM for details.

Please use "oem-metapackage-mir-check" in lp:ubuntu-archive-tools to verify this MIR against the reference package in the archive.

Hello OEM, or anyone else affected,

Accepted oem-somerville-gendry-meta into focal-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/oem-somerville-gendry-meta/20.04~ubuntu1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-focal to verification-done-focal. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-focal. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

There were no outputs by `ubuntu-drivers list-oem` before using focal-proposed.
After using focal-proposed, `ubuntu-drivers list-oem` shows oem-somerville-gendry-meta.
When I executed `sudo ubuntu-drivers install`, it will install oem-somerville-gendry-meta 20.04~ubuntu1 from focal-proposed/main, and then upgrade to oem-somerville-gendry-meta 20.04ubuntu4 from "http://dell.archive.canonical.com focal/somerville-gendry".
After I reboot the system, the system boots by linux-image-5.8.0-61-generic that meets our expectation.
Some log for the test. https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/q5brSq22Tr/
