Thanks in advance for the help and guidance, I’m a bit panicked right now and I’d like to restore our Gitlab instance as soon as possible.
I tried to upgrade our Ubuntu instance from 16.04 to 18.04, we were using GitLab 12.2.5. For some reason, Ubuntu tried to upgrade Gitlab from 12.2.5 Xenial (16.04) to 12.2.5 Bionic (18.04), basically same GitLab version but a different package I guess.
The upgrade failed displaying this error:
version `GLIBC_2.25’ not found (required by /opt/gitlab/embedded/lib/libruby.so.2.6)
I tried to fix the installation using “apt install -f” but does nothing, and our GitLab instance doesn’t work and can’t be restarted.
To be honest, I don’t have any clue about how to repair the problem, looks like our GitLab installation is in the middle of 16.04 and 18.04. If I uninstall GitLab using “apt” and install it again, do I need to restore a backup or only deletes the application files and not the data?
Thanks again for the help and guidance.
