500 Error Since Updating to 8.17

I recently updated our gitlab installation to 8.17. After a lot of frustration and fighting with ruby I finally got the gitlab service to startup again, but now it seems like there is something wrong with the web service. I’m getting a ‘500 something is wrong’ error when I try to hit the login page. I looked at the logs for gitlab and nginx and I can’t find anything to indicate what is causing the problem. This issue has brought work to a complete halt so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Install details:

OSX 10.11.6 (el capitan x64)
Gitlab 8.17 (installed from source)
mysql db
nginx webserver
