I fixed this with an updated live-build-configuration:;a=commitdiff;h=cab92ee094babe77ee8b5cc10e2747da9bff3daf

But this will not fix the already released ISO, it will just fix the future daily and weekly ISO.

@elwood, do you think we should update the released ISO with a 2018.3a release?

@rhertzog, Yes, its likely best we should do an updated ISO. I think there are enough people that only ever use the release ISOs that if we don't it will cause a lot of issues until the next release.
