[Solved] q4os-welcome5 not upgraded

Some days ago I ran

$ sudo apt update
$ apt list --upgradable

and I saw there were 3 packages available for upgrade (if I remember well, all three were Q4OS related). I then ran

$ sudo apt upgrade --dry-run
$ sudo apt full-upgrade --dry-run
$ sudo apt dist-usgrade --dry-run

and each time the simulation showed the upgrade of only 2 of the 3 packages.

Anyway, I decided to run the real upgrade command and these 2 package were indeed upgraded.

After that, only q4os-welcome5 remained not upgraded. As suggested by a previous apt list --upgradable command, I then ran

$ apt list -a --upgradable
En train de lister... Fait
q4os-welcome5/q4os-4-0-st 4.2.1-a1 amd64 [pouvant être mis à jour depuis : 4.1.1-a1]
q4os-welcome5/now 4.1.1-a1 amd64 [installé, pouvant être mis à jour vers : 4.2.1-a1]

I also tried -- unsuccessfully -- to upgrade that particular package with

$ sudo apt upgrade q4os-welcome5
(...)
Les paquets suivants contiennent des dépendances non satisfaites :
 q4os-welcome5 : Dépend: q4os-welcome-common mais il n'est pas installable
E: Paquets défectueux

$ sudo apt reinstall q4os-welcome-common
(...)
Les paquets suivants contiennent des dépendances non satisfaites :
 q4os-welcome5 : Dépend: q4os-welcome-common mais il n'est pas installable
E: Paquets défectueux

Since then, Update Manager ran automatically and I accepted the upgrades, but q4os-welcome5 still remains not upgraded.

So far, I remain with a system apparently not up-to-date. Up to now I noticed no problem, but I would like to have a totally clean system for the future.

I would like to know what mistake I made that broke the upgrade system.

And I would like to know how to solve my q4os-welcome5 upgrade problem.

Thanks for your advices.

At first, your system is clean, it's not broken. You cannot upgrade package q4os-welcome5, as the version 4.1.1 has been put on hold in the repository and package q4os-welcome-common temporarily removed. You can check the package status using command:
$ apt policy q4os-welcome5

This repository configuration has been taken intentionally as an emergency solution, because of bug in Discover package manager, what were not able to upgrade the system at once, although terminal commands and other update managers worked well, see https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=4227

Now, we need to wait some time for systems to perform the first phase of upgrades and subsequently we can free the q4os-welcome5 package in the repository again. Discover will be then able to pass the complete upgrade at this second phase. This transitional status will enable Discover update manager to carry out the first phase of the upgrade. It will last about a week, then the
q4os-welcome-common package will be available again and q4os-welcome5 will be freed for upgrade to 4.2.1 version.

This glitch cannot not affect your system in a wrong way, updates and Apt commands operates and will operate as ordinarily as usual. Discover package manager will be able to pass the upgrades in two phases cleanly as described above.

We have slightly updated repositories configuration to be cleaner, so you should see no warnings about missing packages after "apt update". However the 2-phase upgrade as described above is still ongoing for Discover package manager to be able to resolve packages dependencies properly.
