yesterday I upgraded my GitLab Ubuntu server from version gitlab-ce-10.2.3 to gitlab-ce-10.3.3.
The upgrade went smoothly, but then I suddenly discovered that I was not able anymore to perform any remote operation from any of my Eclipse workspaces which point to my GitLab-hosted repositories: any fetch/pull operation (could not test push ones) would indefinitely remain at 0% progress.
All the connections from Eclipse or CLI are performed via SSH.
Please note that, suspecting some kind of bug in the Egit version used, I also upgraded Eclipse in between the first tests from Neon.2 to Oxygen.2 with no change in the outcome.
git fetch or
git pull from the command line (using git 2.14.1 on Linux x64) works ok, however.
I then discovered that, if I restarted the GitLab server via
gitlab-ctl restart while Eclipse was already stuck at 0% in a fetch/pull operation, then Eclipse would gladly complete the operation with no errors, also pulling in changes flawlessly(!).
I then successfully performed a downgrade to version 10.2.5 on the GitLab server following the documentation advice, then found that Eclipse was again working ok.
I was not sure if this could be an issue with Eclipse or GitLab, but I suspect that some change between version 10.2 and 10.3 of GitLab-CE broke something at least for some clients.
Does anybody have the same issue?
