Automatic updates not updating
OS: Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS Firefox: 102.0.1
I have the above version of firefox installed on my machine. I had noticed that automatic updates weren't being installed and did a little digging. I removed the policies.json file, ran `sudo apt update` and `sudo apt upgrade`, and checked the software update store on my machine. None of these suggestions resolved the issue. I then noticed that whenever I would select `Automatically install updates (recommended)` and close firefox that the change would not persist.
I'm not entirely certain what the issue is at this point and any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

Is there a way to check whether your distro has added Firefox 103.0 to its repository? I got a little lost trying to figure that out.
Thanks for the response! I'm not sure if this is helpful but I ran apt-cache policy firefox and got the following output:
Installed: 102.0.1~1657309964~22.04~d14d793 Candidate: 102.0.1~1657309964~22.04~d14d793 Version table: 1:1snap1-0ubuntu2 500 500 http://apt.pop-os.org/ubuntu jammy/main amd64 Packages *** 102.0.1~1657309964~22.04~d14d793 1001 1001 http://apt.pop-os.org/release jammy/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
Sounds like you have what they've got. Might be a couple days before 103.0 shows up.
Ah ok. I was just a little confused as automatic updates wasn't persisting. I had noticed that app.update.auto was locked as was app.update.enable on about:config. I managed to correct this and now they are unlocked and selectable in about:config. I'll keep an eye out for the update in my OS's repo. Thanks for your help!
My distro is still on 102.0.1-1.2...
