Is that issue related to specific versions of packages components?
the command bench update --requirements should take care of that, am I correct?

I had the same issue, page loaded fine when I opened directly via http://127.0.0.1:8000 but it looked messed up when I opened via proxy http://127.0.0.1:80 In my case this was an nginx issue as it could not load the .css and .js files in /assets.

  1. nginx had no permission to access files in /assets because nginx was running under user www-data while the /assets folder was owned by erpnext. You can:
  • add www-data user to the erpnext group: usermod -aG erpnext www-data
  • edit /etc/nginx/nginx.conf and change: user www-data to user erpnext
  1. /assets/erpnext and /assets/frappe are symlinks. With certain nginx configs it might ignore symlinks, this is fixed using:
  • edit /etc/nginx/nginx.conf and add into the http { section: disable_symlinks off;
  • remove both symlinks and use bind in /etc/fstab, for example:
    /opt/erpnext/frappe-bench/apps/erpnext/erpnext/public /opt/erpnext/frappe-bench/sites/assets/erpnext none defaults,bind 0 0

Make sure to restart nginx after applying changes. Good luck.
