Unknown column 'from_date' in 'field list' (update error, uh oh)

I tried pulling the latest develop branch in hopes that a couple of issues that were posted on github had been fixed.

I got stuck with this error, and a site that shows the Updating screen

bench update --patch, and bench migrate didn’t help the issue. Is this a problem with my database/customizations that requires something to be done through bench mysql? I did stash any small changes I had made… Or is it an issue in the patch?

Thank you!!

I was reading that Bench export-fixtures Would remove any problem filters, seems not to be the fix for this one. Posting for future reference for myself or others experiencing similar issue

Switch-to-master and then switch-to-develop seemed to work, however every document created for the last month has been showing the history as “a few seconds ago”. Is there actually something missing in my database? I’ve been on the dev branch since the beginning

Pushed a fix, please try to update again.

Faced same problem for Payment Entry when a debtor record from Journal Entry was in outstanding, Journal Entry was missing from_date and to_date for Auto Repeat in below version:

  • ERPNext: v12.1.1 (version-12)
  • Frappe Framework: v12.0.11 (version-12)

pymysql.err.InternalError: (1054, “Unknown column ‘from_date’ in ‘field list’”)

Added the two fields in customize form under the Auto Repeat section and it worked.

Had the same problem on

ERPNext: v11.1.42 (master)
Frappe Framework: v11.1.37 (master)
