How do you fix it if you can't install the release? Do you make a new

It has been in the release critera that you should be able to install
on macs and it has worked for a very long time. If you are going to
remove that support you should really let people know in advance (not
a week before release).
You seem to confuse something being in the release criteria, and
something being possible. But that's secondary. If you would like this
scenario to be supported, then commit to testing it before the next
release (in advance, at least a week before the beta freeze).
