Basically, all packages are listed:

tim@ferrari:~$ show system-integrity | wc -l

This might be alarming for people if official 1.2.6 is released without this corrected.

v1.2.5 was fine.

Happens also when just using the booted image without install. Investigating.

All other files ahve the same, so the build time or how the 'build on' is being set, seems to happen before package installation now, or has an issue, which I think is more likely.

It looks like that the build process messed it up, it did create the version file at the beginning of the build, not at the end. After the file usr/share/vyos/version.json was create, pkg installations took place a few minutes alter, that's why everything in the image is newer than the version file, therefore the command output is absolutely correct. I'll check if I can find out what went wrong during the build, since it appears that only 1.2.6 is affected.
