Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Error upgrading from 5.10.0 to head
This policy has a long tradition, that after a new release in a branch (e.g. OpenACS 5.10.0 in branch oacs-5-10) the development continues in the same branch for one or two releases. Then, a large merge operation with HEAD will occur, and it will be noted on the page above, that development continues in e.g. HEAD. The last commit in oacs-core on HEAD was on Oct 25, 2020 , the last commit in oacs-core in the oacs-5-10 branch yesterday .
If you want to upgrade from 5.10.0 to the latest development, take the newest versions from oacs-5-10. Btw, the releases are tagged with openacs-*final (see e.g. )
All the best,
I will look into this when possible.
I hit the problem on a website that had been upgraded to 5.10.0 from 5.9.1, and didn't have xotcl-core installed.
Then when verifying the problem, I did a fresh install of 5.10.0 and attempted upgrading it to 5.10.1. But again, I failed to install xotcl-core on the 5.10.0 fresh install.
If I install the xotcl-core package on the 5.10.0 version, then the upgrade to 5.10.1 runs without errors.
many thanks for the diagnosis! I will try to remove the hidden dependency on xotcl-core!
all the best
