[EP-tech] Upgrading to 3.4.3 - an experience



Hi Ravi,

I will look into why the upgrade did not do an update as well. The 
reason why you won't have been able to login is that various new fields 
have been added to the user data object / record. These are mainly to 
provide better security to temporarily lock accounts when there have 
been too many failed password attempts in a set period of time.

I would generally say that EPrints from APT or YUM/DNF package 
management is generally not advised for production repositories. 
Packages are more intended for installing EPrints for testing and 
evaluation purposes.? If you have a fairly vanilla repository updates 
are unlikely to cause any significant problems but the more bespoke your 
repository the more likely upgrading through the package manager is to 
cause you repository to fail.? This is especially the case if parts of 
the core codebase have been modified on your installation.? Although the 
package manager should warn you, if you choose not to use the latest 
version of a file being installed, it is likely this will leave you with 
an inconsistent version of EPrints that cannot be run.

Regards

David Newman
