Upgrade from 3.14 to 3.15 fails

upgrade

#1

Hi there,

Because of the NXRM 3.14 critical security vulnerability, I am trying to upgrade our instance to the latest release of 3.15.

What I did so far

I basically followed your instructions for upgrading NXRM to a more recent version:

  • Downloaded nexus-3.15.2-01-unix.tar.gz from your website (I’m on Ubuntu 16.04)
  • Untar it in the /opt folder : sudo tar xvzf nexus-3.15.2-01-unix.tar.gz -C /opt
  • Copied the modified configuration files and SSL certificates from our old version:

sudo cp /opt/nexus/etc/jetty/jetty-https.xml /opt/nexus-3.15.2-01/etc/jetty/

sudo cp -R /opt/nexus/etc/ssl/ /opt/nexus-3.15.2-01/etc/

sudo cp /opt/nexus/bin/nexus.vmoptions /opt/nexus-3.15.2-01/bin/nexus.vmoptions

  • Changed the owner to a user NXRM has access to:
    sudo chown -R nexus:nexus /opt/nexus-3.15.2-01/

  • Stopped the Nexus Repository service

sudo systemctl stop nexus.service

  • Changed the /opt/nexus symbolic link to the new folder and set the ownership to nexus: sudo ln -sfn /opt/nexus-3.15.2-01 /opt/nexus

sudo chown -Rh nexus:nexus /opt/nexus

  • Start the Nexus Repository service: sudo systemctl start nexus.service

From there the service starts but after a few seconds systemctl status shows me that NXRM is failed.
FWIW changing the symbolic link to go back to using NXRM 3.14 works.

Below is an extract of the nexus.log generated from starting nexus.service after setting it up to using the 3.15 version (starting from the first error message):

Why does this fail?

Hello,

Your three copy commands seem to have the wrong version in them - should they have been to the new version 3.15.2 or was this just a typo ?

Regards.

Hi Michael,

Sorry, that was a typo when typing the question. The three copy commands were indeed to 3.15 in my terminal.
