Update Failing Locally

While attempting to update my local installation to v4.12.1 from 4.0.1, I’m getting a Ghost v4.12.1 is not compatible with the current Node version. using both node version 12.10.0 and 14.15.2.

Is there a chance it’s because I’m on the MacOS Beta version 12? If so, is there a way I can work around it to force an update to Ghost 4.12.1?

You need at least node 14.16.1 :slight_smile:

Seemed reasonable… but still no love…

ghost update responds with You are running an outdated version of Ghost-CLI. It is recommended that you upgrade before continuing. Run npm install -g ghost-cli@latest to upgrade.

So since your response, I did:

  • nvm install 14.16.1
  • nvm use 14.16.1 (just in case :slight_smile: )
  • npm install -g ghost-cli@latest
  • ghost update

Did I miss something?

What?!! I just realized that my CLI version went backward somehow.

I did npm install -g ghost-cli@latest but ended up on v1.13.1 rather than 1.17.3.

I’ll reinstall calling out the newer version. Stand by…

Still off…

Got it.

Thanks for the assist @vikaspotluri123

Ended up having conflicting CLI versions. This post (Ghost CLI Update issue - #9 by themeix) helped me pin it down.

I’m up and running on the latest once again.
