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.

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