Upgrading 13.2 to 13.4 fails (deb on Ubuntu 20.04)


We are running a test installation of XWiki 13.2 on a Ubuntu 20.04 server. The instance is practically empty. The only thing we did was enabling LDAP login.

Now I did a apt-get dist-upgrade and upgraded the deb packages to 13.4 and all I get is a 504 error (Java typical with no helpfull error message).

We’ve been trying to evaluate Xwiki as our new wiki for quite some time. But lack of time asside we haven’t been able to do so, because it seems that Xwiki breaks at (mostly) every update. How can an “enterprise” software be so sensitive?

Is it just us? Bad mojo?

I’d be curious to know too since this is not our experience.

However without more details, it’s going to be hard to help you. At the very least you should provide the xwiki logs and look for errors in there.

BTW if you’re so interested by stability then you should definitely use the LTS version and not the latest one :slight_smile:
