Package Manager throws "Input string was not in a correct format" error when using Locales with "," number separating formats



To reproduce:
1. Go to Region & Language Settings in Windows
2. Change "Country or region" to "Poland"
3. Change "Windows display language" to "LatvieŇ°u"
4. Open up a new unity project
5. Go to Window -> Package Manager
6. Observe the editor console window

Expected: Console Windows shows no errors
Actual: The Package Manager packages throw "System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format" errors

Reproduced in: 2019.1.0b9, 2019.2.0a7

Could not reproduce with any of 2017.4 versions because the Package Manager was not implemented in these releases yet

    Fixed in 2019.1.0b10

    This major issue should be fixed earlier than in 6 months from now release. This is ridiculous. Not even 2019.1 that is not release yet would have not get fix ?

    Thanks Steego for the fix. I still don't understand how such a simple fix that causes a critical bug in a central Unity system can't be pushed for 2019.1. This is totally ridiculous, USA is not the center of the world.

    It's sad. Why not in 2019.1?
    Same here with ukrainian settings.

    A workaround while waiting, replace line 76 in PackageInfo.cs


    var version = Convert.ToDouble(shortVersionId.Split('@')[1]); // Works since shortversion acts like a decimal


    var version = Convert.ToDouble(shortVersionId.Split('@')[1], System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture); // Works since shortversion acts like a decimal

    You can find this in the package cache, for me this is the path:

    C:\Program Files\Unity\Hub\Editor\2019.1.0b8\Editor\Data\Resources\PackageManager\BuiltInPackages\com.unity.package-manager-ui\Editor\Sources\Services\Packages\PackageInfo.cs

    You have to re-do this if you update the package manager ui.

    Yeah, I would like to see this in 2019.1 too :) or even 2018.3.

    I'm French and have this bug too.

    I saw that it's marked fixed in 2019.2. Is this serious ? I can't even use Unity 2019.1.0b8 because of that. I can't imagine such a bug not being corrected for a major Unity version.

    I'm hitting this in 2019.1.0b7, and the issue says fixed in 2019.2 - is it not getting fixed in 2019.1?
