"update asap" message in GitLab Admin, but already on latest version




  • Am I actually on an insecure/unstable version?
  • If so, what about 9.2.1 is currently unacceptable?
  • Do I actually need to update asap?

I’m having same issue and question. I ran the update and upgrade commands jsut to be sure but I still see “update ASAP” in the components



I also am seeing this “severe red warning” to upgrade asap.

I just did a gitlab update, to make sure, since I had seen the warning for some weeks now.

Nothing has changed. Still in the red, i guess.

I have to assume it’s a bug.



Within the last couple of weeks, 10.7.7, 10.8.6, 11.0.5 and 11.1.2 has come out, the latest was announced as a “Security Release” (10.7.7 was released before 11.1 came, and wasn’t updated with the latest “Security Release”, possibly because it became non-supported when 11.1 was released), so if you’ve had that warning for some weeks, and haven’t done anything about it, you’re behind.

There are omnibus packages available of the new versions. I can’t say anything about the other methods, but I would be a little surprised if no updates were available there.

If there’s a bug you should report it, but more likely you’re running a version with known security issues and should update.



I am also facing this issue image
in my admin panel.



The newest is 11.1.4 so you’re not completely up-to-date, but as the releases page just says “GitLab 11.1.4 patch release resolves a number of regresssions and bugs in 11.1.2 release” (I copy-pasted it, those three s’es are not my spelling error) I don’t see the urgency warranting the “asap”.



I’m having this issue as well and I’m at the latest version according to install gitlab-ce. Here is the post with my config: Components “Update ASAP”



Same here, i am having a fresh installation. Newest version, of course 11.6.0-ee (4c09765)



On December 31, 11.6.1 was released (at least that’s the date on the release announcement), so you were indeed a version behind if you were only running 11.6.0 on January 1 (the date the forum software shows for your post).



The latest update was released on December 31st and it contains an important security fix.

If you’ve not updated GitLab in the New Year (2019), you should update now:

Hi Greg,

I am having this problem AFTER updating as indicated in your documents. I am still showing the message

It does not matter how I try to update and then reboot. It will NOT update further. What could be the issue?



Yes? All your message said was “Hello,”
Is there a solution?



Sorry, my first reply to this topic was cutoff with only the salutation surviving. I was replying to let Gitlab know that I was having this issue with my installation (11.4.3-ee (dce6f33)) as well.



This is now the second round of updates that I have done on this system. I am STILL seeing the message, despite using sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce The system advises me that I am already ON the latest version. My relevant env info is as follows:

System information
System: Ubuntu 18.04
Ruby Version: 2.4.4p296
Gem Version: 2.7.6
Bundler Version:1.16.2
Rake Version: 12.3.1
Redis Version: 3.2.11
Git Version: 2.18.1
Sidekiq Version:5.1.3
GitLab information
Version: 11.3.4
Revision: 30f019d
GitLab Shell
Version: 8.3.3

Can someone please provide a solution to this ongoing issue?



The newest version is 11.8.1, so the message is correct. Perhaps you don’t have a repository with the newest version available? Do you have a line in /etc/apt/sources.list mentioning gitlab?
