This issue comes from a change in behavior from RPM 4.13. It'll

If you want to tell it to not generate debug information, add the
following to your spec:

%global debug_package %{nil}

This will tell _every_ distribution target capable of generating
debuginfo packages to not do so.

And will therefore probably lead to a giant fireball, because
OBS is in charge of enabling/disabling the debug flags.
Whenever there was a debuginfo issue in OBS, removal of any
override like the one you suggest made the errors go away.

Well, unfortunately, RPM no longer allows for empty debuginfo
packages. This was permitted in RPM < 4.13, which allowed people to
make packages like OP did. If you *know* that a package isn't going to
have debug info, then set it and put a comment explaining why it is
