[slurm-users] Invalid qos specification

Slurm users,

I have created a partition named general should allow the QOSes 
'general' and 'debug':

PartitionName=general Default=YES AllowQOS=general,debug Nodes=.....

However, when I try to request that QOS, I get an error:

$ salloc -p general -q debug  -t 00:30:00
salloc: error: Job submit/allocate failed: Invalid qos specification

I'm sure I'm overlooking  something obvious. Any idea what that may be? 
I'm using slurm 18.08.8 on the slurm controller, and the clients are 
still at 18.08.7 until tomorrow morning.
