Upgrade Error from v1.6.0.beta1 to 1.6.0.beta2?



I tried to upgrade today from beta1 to beta2. In that process somehow it got stuck and it showed as upgrading… I reseted the upgrade now it shows i am at the latest version when i am not?


I hope I’m not hijacking your thread, and it’s not the same error as yours, but when I tried updating from +281 to beta 2 yesterday it would always fail with the following:

Be sure to add swap to this instance of yours.


Already has 2GB swap. I added swap immediately after the Droplet was created.

What does free return?


It returns that I should hang my head in shame. I added swap but did not edit the /etc/fstab file, so I lost swap during a reboot somewhere. I have corrected that.

I also went ahead and added the following entries to /etc/sysctl.conf:

vm.swappiness=10 vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50

Returning to this topic’s original flavour of upgrade error:

Me too

after git pull and ./launcher rebuild app

(Peter) #8

I have the same problem described in more details here: Cannot access topics after upgrade from 1.6.0.beta1 to beta2


Bumping this topic since it got derailed, i did git pull and rebuild too

(Jeff Atwood) #10

Did you reboot your server?


Nope? Should i do that?

(Jeff Atwood) #12

Yes, you should try that.


Same result after rebooting

(Peter) #14

What mechanism is there to use v1.6.0.beta2 if there is a more recent test_pass version? It looks like my build is saying the identical (wrong) thing and pointing to this commit but stating this is v1.6.0.beta1+281. I’ll try if my problem still happens if I explicitely use


Umm any other way i can solve this??

You are simply referring to the version mis-match right? If so, don’t sweat it. You can always visit admin/upgrade to pick up the latest changes. My sandbox is showing the same thing as your screenshot.


Same here:

I’ve already tried:

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

(Sam Saffron) #18

Well then this is completely unrelated to the OP on the topic but somehow we forgot to bump versions right @neil

Meta is at v1.6.0.beta1 +316 … latest is beta2

(Jeff Atwood) #19

Well that explains all the version issue reports :frowning:

(Neil Lalonde) #20

Hmm I don’t see how we forgot to bump version.

Both master and beta branches have the version.

The installed_describe value is wrong, but everything else is correct:

Something about this isn’t working anymore:

installed_describe: `git describe --dirty`
