Well, 1.85 doesn't have asdf-output-translations.

Considering that about no one should be using asdf 1
(except that my work laptop still runs an antique ubuntu with
common-lisp-controller 6.18 and asdf 1.374),
we could eschew the upgrade tests from asdf 1.x.
What if you edit run-tests.sh function upgrade_tags
to NOT try to upgrade from the 1.x versions?
And/or edit valid_upgrade_test_p
to avoid upgrade tests on allegro and 1.x?

Well, it's vaguely possible that something happens on your system
that interferes with proper output translations and/or cleanup.

Note that the first ASDF_UPGRADE_TEST_METHODS is
precisely to clean the fasl from previous lisps or lisp versions used.
If you overrode that variable, it could explain why some things are wrong.
