Gitlab-ee upgrade 13 to 14, version 14 not found

I am trying to upgrade from gitlab-ee 13.12.15 to version 14. I’m assuming I would need to go to 14.0.12 first, then on to the next 14.1.X, and so on, but I am getting the following message when I do the apt install command.

root@gitlab# apt install gitlab-ee
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
gitlab-ee is already the newest version (13.12.15-ee.0).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I have tried re-running the | sudo bash and apt update commands, and have specified the version on the install line, but I cannot seem to find version 14 available.

The following shows 13.12.15 as the latest version available to me

root@gitlab:~# apt-cache madison gitlab-ee
 gitlab-ee | 13.12.15-ee.0 | xenial/main amd64 Packages
 gitlab-ee | 13.12.12-ee.0 | xenial/main amd64 Packages
 gitlab-ee | 13.12.11-ee.0 | xenial/main amd64 Packages

Any help is appreciated.


Hi, I am facing the same issue with version 14.3.3-ee.

Did you found the solution?

(I don’t know why I didn’t see this is january)

Support for ubuntu’s xenial release (that the original message mentions) expired last year, so GitLab stopped building and releasing new versions for it. So as long as you run Xenial the mentioned script (and never run curl | sudo bash-style commands, download, read and execute the version you downloaded) will configure a repo that doesn’t have (and won’t get) newer versions of GitLab.

@drojo : 14.3.3 isn’t even the lastest release in the 14.3-series (there’s up to 14.3.6), and no supported Ubuntu versions have expired since, so what ever you’re facing it is not the same issue. Please provide some more details on:

  • which Linux distribution you use (and which version of it)
  • what command you’re trying (also try upgrading to 14.3.6)
  • what error message you’re getting
  • which GitLab repos are configured on your machine
  • if you’re even using the omnibus packages or you have installed from source
