tb-updater is broken again after 13.0 update is available

It tries to download tor-browser-linux64-13.0_ALL.tar.xz.asc and fails but the filename that is available is called tor-browser-linux-x86_64-13.0.tar.xz.asc as can be seen here.

The Tor developers have announced on their blog that they changed the naming scheme.:

We’re pleased to report that we’ve made the naming scheme for all our build outputs mutually consistent. Essentially, this means that going forward the names of all our build artifacts should follow the format ${ARTIFACT}-${OS}-${ARCH}-${VERSION}.${EXT}. For example, the macOS .dmg package for 12.5 was named TorBrowser-12.5-macos_ALL.dmg, whereas for 13.0 it’s named tor-browser-macos-13.0.dmg.

If you are a downstream packager or download Tor Browser artifacts using scripts or automation, you’ll need to do a little more work beyond just bumping the version number to support this and future releases.


Work in progress.

Fixed in all repositories.

Will be fixed after the usual upgrades as per:

(Whonix is based on Kicksecure.)
