I ended up upgrading Ubuntu - worst choice ever…
After it I tried updating Ghost from 4.3.3 to 4.13.0 - the update went well but when it was restarting ghost I’ve got the following error:
[Oddly enough, if I reboot the server,
ghost status reports the ghost instance as running, but browsing the website gives the 502 Bad Gateway nginx error, when I
ghost restart the error is as follows]
Running Ghost on a DigitalOcean server.
** OS: Ubuntu, v20.04.3 LTS**
** Node Version: v14.17.6**
** Ghost Version: 4.13.0**
** Ghost-CLI Version: 1.17.3**
** Environment: production**
** Command: ‘ghost restart’**
Message: Ghost was able to start, but errored during boot with: Migration lock was never released or currently a migration is running.
Help: If you are sure no migration is running, check your data and if your database is in a broken state, you could run
Suggestion: journalctl -u ghost_com -n 50

I would love to just rollback and maybe figure it out how to upgrade later, but I never rolled back to another version, even though I’ve a backup from 4.3.3
Thanks for any help!
