Bench switch-to-v4 error

Hi, just trying to update an existing test deployment of V4 and running ‘bench update’ advises that it will cause a major version change from V4 to v5.

As I want to keep the test server on V4 for the moment, when I use ‘bench switch-to-v4’, I get the following error:-
administrator@ubuntu:~/frappe-bench$ bench switch-to-v4
Branch v4.x.x set up to track remote branch v4.x.x from upstream.

The system is currently running the following versions:-
ERPNext: v4.24.0
Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning for Small and Midsized OrganizationsFrappe Framework: v4.13.1
Full Stack Web Application Framework in Python

Running ‘bench switch-to-master’ causes a similar error

Thanks, Ardan

Hey Ardan,
Can you run,

cd apps/frappe
git config --add remote.upstream.fetch '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/upstream/*
git fetch upstream --unshallow
cd -
cd apps/erpnext
git config --add remote.upstream.fetch '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/upstream/*
git fetch upstream --unshallow
cd -

and try the switch-to-v4 command again?
Let me know if it works, will add it to bench :smile:

Hi Pratik, ran into a couple of issues:-

The 1st line of git command’s won’t run without a ’ at the end so I added it and it ran OK.
The 2nd line “git fetch upstream --unshallow” returns with an error:-
fatal: --unshallow on a complete repository does not make sense
Thanks, Ardan

Can you try running fetch without --unshallow and then run bench switch-to-v4?

That seems to have done the trick. No errors encountered with the git commands and the ‘bench switch-to-v4’ went through as well without any errors.

The running app now shows-

Installed Apps ERPNext: v4.24.4
Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning for Small and Midsized OrganizationsFrappe Framework: v4.13.6
Full Stack Web Application Framework in Python

Many thanks, Ardan

Awesome! Will automate this in bench
Thanks for testing
