Troubleshooting: Build too Recent After Upgrade

Last Updated: 2021-10-06

Condition or Error

Kafka fails to start after an upgrade

Humio reports error:

Humio build is too recent for upgrade on top of the local files, which had no version. Please upgrade to 1.16.0 before running this build

Causes

  • If you have just upgraded your Humio installation, this error indicates that you have upgraded to a version that is unable to migrate the existing data files to the new upgraded version.

Solutions

  • Try upgrading to a lower version first. Check the details on Release Notes; the Upgrades From column will indicate which version you can upgrade from. Depending on your version, you may need to upgrade multiple times to reach your desired version. Upgrading in this way will ensure that your existing data files and configuration are migrated during the upgrade process.
