Last sunday I wanted to upgrade my Gitlab instance from v7.10.1 to v7.10.4.
I also wanted to “convert” my instance to a package installation. So I ran these commands:
curl https://packages.gitlab.com/install/repositories/gitlab/gitlab-ce/script.deb.sh | sudo bash sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce
And that got my instance upgraded to v7.11.RC2. A release candidate …
Not a big issue for my private instance, but at work we prefer stable releases.
I know I could have specify a version like
sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce=7.10.4~omnibus.1-1
apt-get install the latest stable version, v7.10.4, if no version is specified?
