[v8] Cannot upgrade from 8.0.14 to 8.0.15

Hello. I’m trying to upgrade my erpnext from v8.0.14 to 8.0.15 and I got the following errors. My last upgrade worked smoothly without any error. But it seems this time there is some problem with the new update. Please take a look:

Does user has permission to write in apps/frappe ?

Yes Im using root user

try this

cd apps/erpnext
chmod -R g+ws .git
chown -R myuser:mygroup .git

change myuser and mygroup to your user and group
then bench update should work

Hello sir,
I followed your steps but it is sill not working.

well i had an error in my last reply (and I’ve already edited)

cd apps/erpnext
chmod -R g+ws .git
chown -R myuser:mygroup .git

change myuser and mygroup to your user and group
then bench update should work

If the error exactly the same right now?

if this doesn’t work you could always do a git clone of erpnext and copy into apps/ and then bench update should work

Hello sir,
The error now is:

error: cannot open .git/FETCH_HEAD: Permission denied

this should work, are you sure about the user and group? I cannot help more.

Thank you very much sir, it’s perfectly working now. I thought the user must be root, because I was using root. But it must be “frappe:1001”. Now the system is up to date

As a point of note, you should sudo to the erpnext user and do all updates there. Don’t operate as root.

Thank you
