Gitlab ce docker upgrade from 11.11.8 to 12.X

Hello,
I recently migrated web installation of gitlab to docker and upgraded version to 11.11.8, everything went sort of smoothly, but if I want to upgrade from version 11.11.8 any version up (I tried 12.0.0 and 12.0.12) I am getting database migration errors:

ERROR: column “url” does not exist
gitlab_gitlab.1.x41liwzi17e7@bjsw-srv | ESC[0m LINE 1: UPDATE geo_nodes SET name = url;

Based on Database migration fails after installing the recently released GitLab 12.0.0 package on Debian stretch (#63612) · Issues · GitLab.org / GitLab FOSS · GitLab I even tried installing ee version, but there is also migration problem but with already existing columns.
I am appending logs from my update experiments:

What can I do in this situation ? How can I bypass this without losing any of the data stored in my installation ? Thank you for every answer in advance

I have resolved this issue by adding the column url to table myself, then upgrade migration finished successfuly
