Markkyboy, as you can see from your own screenshot, it is not under the Jolla section.

You hsve to dearch for the keyword "Sailfish Utilities" in the Jolla Store, then it will show up and you can install it. I agree though it should show up in the Jolla section of the store. Furthermore it should not be located under Settings -> Info but in an own section of the settings.

That you used a search for it just proofs my point. I was looking at the release notes, went to store, went to Jolla category, then went to console and pkcon and zypper searched for it, then finally asked someone on IRC about it and was told that I have to search in the store for it. Odd path I know but does $user automatically search for something he does not know about? Future $user wont know about it if it isn't in the Jolla category. I know that the category is said to be for Jolla essentials as things like yandex does not show there either but otoh it is a mandatory tool it seems (at least for now as some things are still so top down that people need to reset their trackerdb frequently) and makes one wondering why it isn't just part of the pre-installed stack - every update installs useless simkit but stuff like this is missing.

Sorry guys, quite right. Didn't read the question properly, my bad.
