Pages not deploying after update to 14.9 (ee)

Hi.

I updated GitLab ee 13.12 via 14.0.12 to 14.9 (omnibus on CentOS 8). Everything seemed fine. Then I recognized that the pages:deploy stage does not work as expected. It does not touch any content in /var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails/shared/pages. The content there is still from the time before the update although I ran several pipelines with pages since then.

Can anybody help or give me a hint where to look because I have no clue!

I couldn’t find any errors in the logs. But I found out that the content of /var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails differs from a “fresh” installation. Mine looks like this:

-rw-r--r--  1 root root         12 Apr 29 12:30 REVISION
-rw-r--r--  1 root root         63 Apr 13 11:53 RUBY_VERSION
-rw-r--r--  1 root root         10 Apr 29 12:30 VERSION
drwx------  2 git  root       4096 Apr 29 13:50 etc
drwxr-x--x 13 git  gitlab-www 4096 Apr 13 11:52 shared

drwx------  2 git  root       4096 Jun  1  2021 working

Any help appreciated!
Thanks
