Weird! Try running sudo /var/discourse/launcher rebuild app on your server – it most likely will fix your issue, and also update Discourse in the process :slight_smile:

This is a legit bug @tgxworld, I get a 500 error on when in incognito mode, attempting to access the /admin/upgrade – and that is on latest too.
