Flatpak 0.10.4 "open(O_TMPFILE): Permission denied"
Last modified: 2019-12-30 14:18:59 UTC
Hello, I installed flatpak, added Flathub, restarted my system but I get permission error when it tries to download a runtime:
flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam
Required runtime for com.valvesoftware.Steam/x86_64/stable (org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/1.6) is not installed, searching...
Found in remote flathub, do you want to install it? [y/n]: y
Installing: org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/1.6 from flathub
[####= ] Downloading: 31,3 MB/185,7 MB (978,4 kB/s)
error: While pulling runtime/org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/1.6 from remote flathub: Writing content object: open(O_TMPFILE): Permission denied
I found other users had likely the same issue and it seems to have been fixed in a newer version:
I also tried reinstalling flatpak (with a reboot) and updating my system since encountering the error but I still run into the same issue. I am currently on Tumbleweed 20180520
Maybe updating flatpak would be a good idea, the current version is from February and there are plenty newer releases available.
Thank you for any help!
Can I provide more information?
Is there a workaround to this bug?
Flatpak 0.11.7 has already been submitted to Tumbleweed and should hopefully appear in the next days.
thank you, I will try it!

Did not hear back after the update and by now we are reaching flatpak 1.6 - so let's close as fixed
