I can't test it in 18.04 but it seems to be working in 19.04, in the Application and the Notification area

Also confirming on Ubuntu 18.04.
FWIW, the later version I have on Fedora 30 works correctly.

workaround: edit /etc/inxi.conf, make line 2 B_ALLOW_UPDATE=true, then in terminal do> sudo inxi -U

This is not a bug, the weather source that was in inxi 2.x and 3.0.31 and earlier is gone. The only fix for weather is to update to current inxi (3.0.33 in ubuntu, and 3.0.34 in master branch of github inxi).

The reason later versions work is because they point to a new weather data source.

As noted by the upstream maintainer, this bug was fixed in version 3.0.31 with the following changelog entry:

 3. BIG: current inxi weather will probably fail if not updated to this or
 newer versions!! Not an inxi bug per se, but your users will see it as one.

This will, of course, affect all versions prior to that release.

Changed in inxi (Ubuntu):
status: Confirmed → Fix Released
