Was the ability to install earlier versions (v10 especially) killed following this release? I just attempted to install v10 and even though the installation ran successfully i got presented with v12. Worse still, i cannot restore v10 backup on v12 as a long trace back error is thrown when i run bench migrate after backup is restored, effectively killing my instance.

Just do what @DrTrills suggested, run this command on your erpnext directory, i.e /frappe-bench/apps/erpnext

git config remote.upstream.fetch "+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/upstream/*"

and then

bench switch-to-branch version-12 --upgrade
bench update --patch

I followed the instructions above and got this after completing the process:

This appeared on my home page

UPDATE: I rebooted the machine and i’m able to login. But only frappe seems to have migrated. How to i migrate erpnext? This is what i see.

Please report and discuss issues here [Mega Thread] Version 12 Release Bugs - #29 by kennethsequeira

This is what i have been trying to fix. So far i keep getting this error:

frappe.exceptions.DoesNotExistError: DocType Item Manufacturer not found

This is the correct command for it to work:

git config remote.upstream.fetch “+refs/heads/:refs/remotes/upstream/” from the erpnext folder.

And then:

bench switch-to-branch version-12 --upgrade
bench update --patch

I tried your method but just in erpnext dir and it failed when building frappe assets. I then repeated it but this time i ran git config remote.upstream.fetch “+refs/heads/ :refs/remotes/upstream/ ” also on the frappe dir and everything worked fine but i got we will be back soon when trying to log in.

I have checked supervisor status using supervisorctl status and everything is running. I also restarted but no luck.


I just checked my web.error.log file and found this error:

Any idea if this could be the cause?

Actually, I didn’t miss the *s in the command. The forum doesn’t show the *s. So replacing the * with (star) for your comprehension. Here’s the command:

git config remote.upstream.fetch “+refs/heads/(star):refs/remotes/upstream/(star)” from erpnext and then

bench switch-to-branch version-12 --upgrade
bench update --patch

Hope that helps.



okay. but to reconfirm, am i to run it in only the erpnext directory?

UPDATE: Upgrade completed successfully but only frappe upgraded to v12. erpnext is still on v11

can anyone point out what would be the latest moment when to run the …

switch-to-branch [version]

… command when your instance is on the master branch currently?

not 100% sure if that is still relevant but from switching branches from staging to master las time , but as far as I remember …

switch-to-branch [branch] --upgrade

… would be the ideal command of choice.

Okay, sorry if I am getting too detailed. :slight_smile:

git config remote.upstream.fetch “+refs/heads/(star):refs/remotes/upstream/(star)” from erpnext and then

from frappe-bench directory

bench switch-to-branch version-12 --upgrade
bench update --patch

Hope that helps.




I figured i’d need to do that so i already did. But when i try to migrate i get this error:

frappe.exceptions.DoesNotExistError: DocType Item Manufacturer not found

I essentially gave up, setup a new v12 instance and restored backup and everything is fine. i have tried direct upgrade all day and it doesn’t work


Just scroll up a little bit:

Hope it helps.

Please clarify if:
production systems which were on master need to change either to version-11 or version-12 and both still are valid versions.

very confusing from the start. Here below:

"Repository Changes
The branches on the ERPNext & Frappe repositories are being renamed as follows:

Old Name New Name
develop version-12
master version-11
hotfix version-11-hotfix
Note: The master branch has been deprecated as of today i.e. 22 July, 2019.

Following are the new branches created:

develop: Version 13
version-12-hotfix: Staging area for version 12 fixes
Please note, all your open PRs have to be rebased to the new branch."

Please also note that there are systems on production.
