Description Thomas Walker 2021-10-06 04:06:52 UTC
Description of problem:

Upgrading from 1: to 1: seems to have dropped numerous firmware blobs, leaving wireless networking adapters unusable.

Results in:

[    9.526047] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
[    9.529207] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-QuZ-a0-jf-b0-64.ucode failed with error -2

[    9.570721] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: no suitable firmware found!
[    9.571905] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: minimum version required: iwlwifi-QuZ-a0-jf-b0-39
[    9.573116] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: maximum version supported: iwlwifi-QuZ-a0-jf-b0-64
[    9.574329] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: check git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git

(the prior version had iwlwifi-QuZ-a0-jf-b0-63.ucode.xz)

$ lspci -nnm -s 00:14.3

Note that I actually ran into just after an upgrade from 123->124 but, going back and downloading the 122-124 packages from koji, it seems that 122 was the last "good" package and 123 seems to have dropped 55 blobs, including the ones used by this device.

Please let me know if there is any more information that I can provide.

fwiw I did, but my mistake was in searching for the binary package name, which isn't mentioned in the other ticket, only the source package is.
That said, my apologies for missing it.
