Salt 3006 is currently under development.
Going forward from the 3006 release, the Salt Project will only provide onedir packages to install or upgrade Salt. The classic, non-onedir packages will not be provided for supported operating systems. See Upgrade to onedir in the Salt Install Guide for information about upgrading from the classic packages to the onedir packages.
Python 3.5 and 3.6 will no longer be supported by Salt since they are end of life. Going forward our policy will be to align with Python's supported versions. See Salt support for Python versions for more information.
The migration path from the classic, non-onedir packages to the onedir packages will include:
Repo File: You need to update your repo file to point to the new repo paths for your platform. After the repo file is updated, upgrade your Salt packages.
Pip packages: You need to ensure any 3rd party pip packages are installed in the correct onedir path. This can be accomplished in two ways:
salt-pip install <package name>
pip.installed Salt state.
To install python packages into the system python environment, user's must now
bin_env to the pip state module.
lib-foo: pip.installed: - pip_bin: /usr/bin/pip3 lib-bar: pip.installed: - bin_env: /usr/bin/python3
