there is a github issue resoved this problem, but I did not understand

the solution in github says; make sure the table mentioned in below file has department column
apps/erpnext/erpnext/patchs/v11_0/set_department_for_doctypes.py

def execute():

        doctypes_to_update = {
                'hr': ['Appraisal', 'Leave Allocation', 'Expense Claim', 'Salary Slip',
                        'Attendance', 'Training Feedback', 'Training Result Employee','Leave Application',
                        'Employee Advance', 'Training Event Employee', 'Payroll Employee Detail'],
                'education': ['Instructor'],
                'projects': ['Activity Cost', 'Timesheet'],
                'setup': ['Sales Person']
        }

        for module, doctypes in doctypes_to_update.items():
                for doctype in doctypes:
                        if frappe.db.table_exists(doctype):
                                frappe.reload_doc(module, 'doctype', frappe.scrub(doctype))
                                frappe.db.sql("""
                                        update `tab%s` dt
                                        set department=(select department from `tabEmployee` where name=dt.employee)
                                """ % doctype)

in my database; the table named tabEmployee contain department column.
this is my table

hello @Zia_Akbari. I didn’t solve this yet. I have another problem and last update solve me that. Now i have this error also.

pull now, the problem of column department doesn’t exist is solved.

On update to v11 (from v10) this error is again raising it’s head on this system.

pymysql.err.InternalError: (1054, u"Unknown column 'department' in 'field list'")

from

Executing erpnext.patches.v11_0.set_department_for_doctypes in ...

To attempt a fix, tried to comment out the following patch line in /opt/bench/erpnext/apps/erpnext/erpnext/patches.txt -

erpnext.patches.v11_0.set_department_for_doctypes

Remainder of patches run …

Now we try and bench update again with the patches.txt restored to its original form - with bench update --reset. This will not work because patches.txt is replaced once bench update with --reset flag is run. We end up with “Cannot proceed with update: You have local changes in app “erpnext” that are not committed.”

The result is that the database is brought up to date but with the exclusion of the “erpnext.patches.v11_0.set_department_for_doctypes” patch.

So far no way to update to v11 and I’m stumped.

Hello, thanks for reporting. Can you please post the entire error log?

This will help us better debug the issue.

Sure,

Can you try changing this line:


with this:

frappe.reload_doc(module, 'doctype', frappe.scrub(doctype), force=True)

Getting this message
Cannot proceed with update: You have local changes in app “erpnext” that are not committed.

Here are your choices:

  1. Merge the erpnext app manually with “git pull” / “git pull --rebase” and fix conflicts.
  2. Temporarily remove your changes with “git stash” or discard them completely
    with “bench update --reset” or for individual repositries “git reset --hard”
  3. If your changes are helpful for others, send in a pull request via GitHub and
    wait for them to be merged in the core.

There is there a way to proceed without the above choices to see if it works…

bench migrate

That worked like charm.

Thanks
Do i need to do anything with that change i made? Submit anything?

Thank you, I will make the necessary changes to the core repository tomorrow.

For now you can run git reset --hard in erpnext.

The above change to core got rid of the error and system was upgraded without further error. System complained about yarn:

yarn run v1.12.3
$ FRAPPE_ENV=production node rollup/build.js
module.js:550
throw err

Error: Cannot find module ‘rollup’
Your bench was upgraded to version 11
supervisor.conf already exists and this will overwrite it. Do you want to continue? [y/N]: y
nginx.conf already exists and this will overwrite it. Do you want to continue? [y/N]: y
As you have setup your bench for production, you will have to reload configuration for nginx and supervisor
To complete the migration, please run the following commands
()

This is an OS error. Fix was

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install yarn

Further errors on opening invoices. Fix was

bench clear-cache

and

bench clear-website-cache

Edit: Be very careful with sudo commands on linux. It may potentially break your ErpNext implementation. The moderator may need to remove my entry above. Please remember do always do a proper backup for a rollback.
