I did a ctrl-C in a
gitlab-ctl reconfigure and the whole gitlab environment got broke, psql failed to find a socket repeatably.
I tried a apt-get remove gitlab-ce followed by reinstall but that failed totally !
Things went wrong with runit and redis and uninstalling them and reinstalling gitlab yet again failed.
I seem unable to get back to base to do a reinstall without it failing
heres a pastebin of what I am getting after a system reset and a reinstall :-
Also the installation seems to do too many retries and does not balk out but continues after a failure conditions.
