That annoying one is *still* with us :-/
pinged the bug: http://bugzilla.altlinux.org/33912

Any stable platform gets upgraded to the unstable one
through all of the intermediate stable platforms
(e.g. p9 -> p10 -> sisyphus until p11 is around),
so the resulting system runs on a single repo;
just turning on sisyphus repos with p9 system
is a sure recipe for disaster (hopefully breaking
just the package installation as most of those
would yell and warn that's going to remove half
of the system).

Hence the advice to check with Regular LiveCDs,
as that's a big part of the reason we build them:
to be able to "peek" before the plunge (if any).

PS: I've checked that flatpak version in sisyphus
and p10 is exactly the same: 1.12.2-alt2.1;
*maybe* p9's 1.6.3 behaved quite differently,
then again you can check that while playin'round
with http://en.altlinux.org/starterkits LiveCDs
(they're built from the same mkimage-profiles
as regular builds but the package base differs
along with the desktop wallpaper, obviously).
