All repositories are empty after upgrade


I’m really hoping someone here can help me out.

I’ve upgraded to 9.5.2 from 9.2.7 on a Pi. I’m trying to migrate my data to a new 9.5.2 install on my new dev server.

Now all my repositories on my Pi are showing up as “repository is empty,” of course they’re not really. It’s worth noting the repos are in a custom default gitlab_data_dir.

gitlab-rake gitlab:check confirms ownership/paths access is OK. All the repos are still showing up as “repository is empty” though, so I can’t back them up.

Any ideas for what can be causing this/how to resolve would be very much appreciated


Did you ever figure out what happened here? I did an upgrade and I’m running into the same issue.
