I was running GitLab EE on Ubuntu 20.04 and needed to update for security reasons. I was following the upgrade path tool (using the Omnibus method) and did maybe 8 steps (to version 14.8) before I started getting the “Version not found” error. When I got stuck I figured I’d update Ubuntu to 22.04. While that was running I could have sworn I found a page that explained what to do when the package updater said there were no more updates. But to save my life (and I went through my history) I can’t find that advice.
Trying to update to >=15.5 I get “It seems you are upgrading from major version 14 to major version 15. It is required to upgrade to the latest 15.0.0 version before proceeding.”
But when I try to update to 15.0.5, or anything lower, I get “Package gitlab-ee is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. Version ‘xx.x.x-ee.0’ for ‘gitlab-ee’ was not found.”
My fear is that I updated Ubuntu to the newest version (22.04) before getting GitLab to a version that was supported on Ubuntu 22.04 (14.8) and so I can’t get the next step (14.9 or 14.10) because those versions weren’t built for Jammy, but I’m not allowed to jump to the steps that are supported on Jammy. That said, my GitLab GUI is running no problem so maybe I can trick/force the shorter step?
Again, I’ve been searching high and low for this fix but I’ve spent hours and can’t figure it out.
