@karel VTD. Also the other answer consists of generic suggestions instead of a solution to the exact problem.
not a good or useful answer, looks like the problem has been identified and a solution has been provided already by Rinzwind.
What's going on here? Doesn't look like a question, perhaps OP wants to report a counterfeit app to snap store? Then there is this strange answer (by the asker themselves?). Went on about the software in question like a personal blog post. I reckon it would be better to close the question.

OT as EOL I clicked "Looks OK" by mistake in review.
 
3:18 PM
@Natty tp
@Natty fp - borderline, but even without expansion I think it qualifies as an answer
@Natty tp
@Natty fp - though the answer is wrong and it's probably good, for now, that it was self-deleted
 
^^ I feel like that's borderline in the other direction and could be tp, but I'll hold off on doing anything. Maybe the best thing would be an edit. (To be valuable for the future, an answer to that question should say specifically when Ubuntu 19.10 was officially released and made available.)

@EliahKagan got upvoted :/
 
@Zanna The old deleted one, which was better, got upvoted too before it was deleted.
Editing should be able to improve it, at least when more concrete information is available. Even now it might benefit from a clarity edit; I'm not sure.
not a dupe - That the Ubuntu-provided version of pip is not the latest version neither explains nor solves the situation where pip doesn't install the latest cmake that is available through pip.
@Zanna Anyway, it's unclear to me, both from that post and in general, if it is truly considered released and supported at this time. It's still not linked from ubuntu.com.
To be clear, I'm not suggesting we should close questions about 19.10 that are asked now.
But that answer could be a lot better, both in its wording and in its content.
 
indeed
it's nice that people are enthusiastic about the release!
 
Indeed!
 
:)
 
But I mean, "It is out boys, let's gooo" is not exactly a high quality answer, even aside from the unaddressed ambiguity about whether or not and in what sense it is out.
At minimum, I think the answer should eventually be reworded.
 
4:06 PM
yes
 
Also, it may reflect an incomplete recognition that Ask Ubuntu is supposed to be a reference used by many people. It doesn't say when it came out, so for later reference it will not be very useful unless amended with that information. And while not actually offensive IMO, it "It is out boys" is not something I would want to write while addressing a large audience of people who are not all of the same gender.
 
I was worrying about how we are not all boys and how if I change it all kinds of bad things will happen
 
@Natty tp
@Zanna I will see if I can figure out a way to edit it that I expect would be widely agreed upon. I suspect there is a way, considering there are at least two problems with it.
@Zanna I've edited the post to incorporate what I believe to be the most relevant currently available information. I wanted to preserve more of the original tone of the post and I'm not sure I succeeded at that.
I can edit again if I missed something.
I just changed my wording "it appears to have been released" to "it has been released". I think that's reasonable; also, that aspect of my edit might have been regarded as too radical a change (because the original post did not hedge the claim that it was released).
 
4:29 PM
Thank you very much
@EliahKagan hahaha yes it was not a tentative assertion
 
No problem!
Is this an answer?
It basically claims not to be one, but I am not so sure.
Either way, I think it's reasonable to approve this edit.
 
4:55 PM
@EliahKagan hmm... I didn't understand, is it saying something that's not in the question?
 
Is it really OT-repro?
No. It's not.
Reviewers: I'm inclined to think this isn't "a problem that can't be reproduced." 19.10 not yet being released won't happen again. But knowledge of precisely when it came out will exist and remain of interest in connection with Ubuntu release engineering and history. I don't know if that's a strong enough reason to consider this on-topic. But closing a question as "no repro" that is about something of interest to much of the Ubuntu community doesn't seem right to me. The best approach may be to close this as a duplicate of a broader question about all versions' release times, if we have one. — Eliah Kagan 28 mins ago
I'm inclined to close it as a dupe of this. But if I vote, it'll be closed as OT.
 
Was I wrong to downvote and comment on this?
 
@user3140225 Nope.
 
@Kulfy Thanks. I was surprised by their comment.

@user3140225 On a side note, whenever you edit posts please try to remove things such as "I did the exact same thing, curiosity has killed this cat alot!". Just a suggestion.
 
In this case I wouldn't remove that, though. The answer was really an attempt to say that an existing answer worked. So "I did the exact same thing" clarified that it was intended as a comment rather than an answer.
@user3140225 For the same reason, while your comment is okay and I'm not recommending removing it, I would consider that answer to be what I call a "success report" rather than a duplicate answer. I think the answer's author was likely confused, due to not realizing that their post was expected to provide an answer (rather than to comment on an existing answer).
 
@EliahKagan Yeah that's true but that neither tells anything about the command.
 
@Kulfy The reason I did not remove this sentence was to make it easier for reviewers to spot a bad answer and I edited it to be readable for as long as it would exist.
@EliahKagan I am not totally sure that it was intended as a confirmation comment.
 
5:22 PM
@user3140225 It's intended as some kind of comment about the other answer, though, isn't it?
It starts with "I did the exact same thing". That doesn't make sense except in reference to the other answer.
I guess it could be intended as a separate answer that deliberately recommends the exact same thing as an existing answer.
 
@EliahKagan Yeah, you are right. But I think it can be interpreted both ways. I had thought about flagging it, but my flag could be rejected, because it actually contained an answer.
 
6:22 PM
attempt to reply - The post is short, the comment is quite visible, and there's another more highly voted answer, so I think the information about that software no longer being maintained really doesn't need to be added to the answer.
 
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Link at end of answer, potentially bad keyword in answer (61): How can I view VR (virtual reality) 3D Video on a standard 2D screen in Ubuntu? by user3507286 on askubuntu.com
 
Why is it that when doing insmod myDriver.ko inside a chrooted environment, it still adds my driver inside the "parent" /dev dir instead of the /dev inside my chrooted environment?
