Auto-update issue - "Ensure sidekiq is running."

My entire site was down, no idea why. I rebooted the server (on DO), everything seemed to kick back into gear, but I just logged into the Discourse dashboard and am getting this error:

A check for updates has not been performed lately. Ensure sidekiq is running.

Everything else seems fine. Running v1.5.0beta6+66.

I did a little digging, but didn’t find a solution. I tried a rebuild per this post, no dice.

Is there an easy fix?


The job Jobs::VersionCheck runs daily – so simply waiting might solve your issue.

Alternatively, you can start the job manually from /sidekiq/scheduler.


Yup. Waiting was the solution. I just checked it & all is well.

Thanks Felix.
