Garageband for iOS shows "Pending - Tethered connection required"

We have quite a fast network and really don't care if it takes awhile to download the initial app, so I'm concerned that now, again, Apple is making us have to jump through hoops to make one of their apps work. We use VPP to push all the apps to student use iPads which are all supervised.

Anyone else seeing this message and have any workarounds?

Check the app in the dashboard. The Require tethered network connection for app installation setting may have been inadvertently checked. See the screenshot below on its location. The app must be set to Install Automatically for it to show.

File under the "I'm an idiot" policy for this one. Nice feature I guess I should have read about at some point. In the meantime at least I learned how to use the "Sharing" system preference to basically turn a Mojave machine into a caching server.
