Warning " > bookshelf@0.14.2" has incorrect peer dependency "knex@>=0.6.10 <0.15.0"

Hi team,

I don’t think I was able to find an answer to my question, so please excuse me if this is a duplicate.
Tried upgrading my ghost (it’s currently 3.0.2) to the latest, i.e. 3.0.3, but received the error below.
Happy to attach full diagnostic log if need be, however am hoping someone knows how to deal with it?
Thanks in advance!

Hey! Looks like that same error has been reported on the Ghost CLI GitHub repo, you might be better off following the conversation over there:

Thanks, David, appreciate it. Had a quick peek, no definite answer over there I could see so far, but I’ll keep monitoring. In the meantime if there’s anyone here who experienced similar issue I’m all ears. Cheers.

Experiencing the same error. @stiggy - were you able to find a fix?

Nope, sorry. Seems as if our two instances are somewhat isolated, so far, so there isn’t much drive to find a solution and I’m not that tech savvy to be able to do a little more digging on my own, unfortunately, unless someone points me in the right direction… :slight_smile:

I think I figured it out. Try running these -

First -
sudo npm install -g ghost-cli@latest

Next -
sudo npm install -g npm

The Ghost update went smoothly after that.
