Discourse thinks it is upgrading but it is not


(Clay Heaton) #1

After an attempt to upgrade to v1.4.0.beta8 got stuck, I rebuilt the app, per some advice in a thread here. When the app rebuilt, it upgraded itself. However, Now I see this at my admin/upgrade screen:

Sadly, there’s no upgrade going on. Any idea how to fix this?


Upgrade "currently upgrading" forever

Same as many other responses here, ssh in and do the 3 line magic

cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher app rebuild

Sorry if I wasn’t clear – the screens above are the result of me having done exactly what you suggested. Should I just do it again and hope the problem goes away?

Odd, try clicking the reset upgrade button.

Is the version in view source correct, e.g. Latest?

So, interestingly, it didn’t work until I tried to rebuild the app again. This is what that looked like:

clayh@machine:~$ cd /var/discourse
clayh@machine:/var/discourse$ git pull

Following that, I hit the Reset Upgrade button and it upgraded as expected and all looks normal. Weird.

./launcher rebuild app

Sorry, I got the terms backwards, I was typing that on iPhone – so you didn’t do a rebuild just then.

To confirm, it worked for me. I’m all set!

I was drawn in my the “magic” of this post and didn’t read down to the bottom to see the correction.
