Getting messages about Drupal core update to 8.8.2


As I am finalizing, and as I received a mail that 8,8,2 is released, I thought to install it.

And then I get the message
Automatic updating of Drupal core is not supported. See the upgrade guide for information on how to update Drupal core manually.

Any Drupal core update is managed internally by infrastructure team. You don’t need to worry about it.

Since it’s not a security release and the last update to 8.8.1 was done recently, we will skip this one and wait for a future release to be deployed globally.

Hope that clarifies things.
