Hello,

We're having an issue with the updating to the latest Aggregate V1.4.11 version. We successfully installed the ODKAppEngineUpdater.jar file and the application runs until the end when we receive an error message (see attached image).

We have followed the instructions from the release notes step-by-step and are unsure where the issues is arising. Is there any guidance available for hitting this wall?

Thanks so much,
Jillian

We have now moved a bit further but have hit another wall while updating to ODK Aggregate V1.4.11.

After entering the "token" (code from Google's account authorization webpage) into the ODK Aggregate App Engine Updater, we verified the token and then selected "Upload ODK Aggregate". It runs, but we receive the following error:

When attempting to convert backends to modules (by following the instructions: https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs/java/modules/converting), it's unclear where exactly we are supposed to run the code presented. For example, the instruction say, "Create a top level EAR directory" but it does not described how/where to create a directory in the App Engine console.

Any guidance would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks,

There should be much more output during an upload than just this (initial)
section.

The complaints about the backends failing with 500 errors are expected and
do not indicate failure. The script should continue running and end with a
status line (just like the token verification did).

··· -------- Why:

Our earlier ODK Aggregate releases used a technology called 'backends'.
Google's replacement for 'backends' are AppEngine 'modules'. 'modules' are
incompatible with 'backends'. AppEngine does not allow an application using
'modules' to be uploaded on top of an application that uses 'backends'
(replacing it).

This means that our installer must ensure that all 'backends' from older
ODK Aggregate installations are removed before updating to the newer
'modules' releases. But, because there is no Google mechanism to determine
if backends exist, the installer must issue requests that have these dire
warnings about using an obsolete feature and that fail with 500 errors if
the existing deployment didn't use 'backends'. It is an awkward mess.


These dire warnings and 500 errors can be ignored. Look farther down the
processing output and you should see 2 uploading-progress sections. These
are where the new software is being uploaded, and those should complete
without errors.
