The '-B' option does not work as expected in table files with setupRequired():
ERROR: Invalid argument specified "B"

Here is the text of an email from earlier this month. My apologies for not making a ticket myself at that time.
This report is mimicking a problem seen on Ubuntu. In that case the machine flavor is Linux64bit+3.19-2.19, but cfitsio was installed with flavor Linux64bit+3.13-2.19. On woof, cfitsio is found (incorrectly) if I set the flavor to Linux64bit+2.5 instead of Linux64bit+2.12. Instead I had to use a flavor whose number was higher than "2.12". This is with ups v5_2_0. We have a reproducible problem with setup. The log below should illustrate the problem adequately. There is an umbrella product which sets up a number of other products. I have edited the version file of cfitsio to have the wrong flavor ("Linux64bit+2.6-2.16"). Note that ups returns "1" if I setup cfitsio, but "0" if I setup cosmosis_ups, even though the setup itself reports an error. This product directory is /home/garren/scratch/playground/ups on woof, where you have an account.

Sorry - here is the log:

- Status changed from New to Closed
This ticket appears to convolve two issues:
setupRequired(-B whatever)in a table file does not work. Broken as designed. -B is only available on the command line, or via UPS_OVERRIDE, it is a global flag affecting dependency generation, and cannot be turned on or off partway down the dependency tree.
- The bogus "unsetup whatever failed" that we were getting for products that weren't setup when we tried to generate unsetup actions; This was fixed already.
