This is likely due to Bug 1540132.

I could be wrong but I seem to recall that there was some discussion of sending an email to release-drivers (perhaps dev-platform as well) when something broke updates. If not, sending an email would be helpful so it is simpler to triage bug reports for no updates being advertised and to lessen additional bug reports.

Duping to the fixed bug in Comment 2. rstrong I agree with you it should probably be better communicated. From what I can see, there was some slack discussion this morning in at least one channel and the issue was also noted on the Firefox Nightly Twitter feed.
