Nothing's wrong... normally, a "final" Squeak release is a dead-end
which cannot be updated to the next alpha version. The split off to
the next alpha version usually happens during the previous beta or
gamma phase. For example, when advancing to 3.4gamma you had the
option to switch to 3.5alpha instead.
However, since there were no changes in 3.5alpha when 3.4 moved from
gamma to final (which would cause a conflict), you can run this DoIt in
a workspace of a 3.4 final image, and it will turn your image into a
SystemVersion current version: 'Squeak3.5alpha'.
Then you should be able to fetch updates for 3.5.
And if anyone has a 3.5 final image that they want to advance to
3.6alpha, this slightly more complicated DoIt should work:
SystemVersion current version: 'Squeak3.6alpha'; date: '17 March 2003';
