Bug Description

When running 'sudo flash-kernel' on an 8GB rpi4, it fails with the following error:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo flash-kernel
Unsupported platform.

This only seems to happen on the 8GB model, not 2GB, 4GB, etc.
This is reproducible on both the armhf and the arm64 kernel

  Installed: 3.100ubuntu2

Kernel versions:

Linux ubuntu 5.8.0-1002-raspi #5-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Thu Sep 3 12:48:22 UTC 2020 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

Linux ubuntu 5.8.0-1002-raspi #5-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Thu Sep 3 12:40:07 UTC 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Thank you Paul for reporting this! I have forwarded this to Dave and he informed me that this is now fixed in the new flash-kernel (it was already waiting in the Unapproved queue yesterday). Even though it's quite a serious issue, I consider it non-beta-blocking as it can be fixed with an upgrade. It's important for us to have it fixed for final release, which we will.

This is flash-kernel (3.100ubuntu3) of course.
