Description smars 2019-09-17 14:07:22 UTC
The line (20190829) in /usr/ports/UPDATING instructing how to convert database to the newest version fails when databases to convert use the postgis extension:

--> /usr/ports/UPDATING
su -l postgres -c "pg_upgrade -b /tmp/pg-upgrade/usr/local/bin/ -d /usr/local/pgsql/data/ -B /us      r/local/bin/ -D /var/db/postgres/data11/ -U pgsql "

It is a version incompatibility problem of databases/postgis* (new version is 2.5, previous version 2.4):

-> /var/log/messages:
"could not access file "$libdir/postgis-2.4": No such file or directory"

I tried:
1. to create a simlink (no effect)
2. to install the previous version of postgis in /tmp/pg-upgrade (to do something similar as what is proposed in UPDATING)
-> /var/log/messages:
ERROR:  incompatible library "/tmp/pg-upgrade/usr/local/lib/postgresql/postgis-2.4.so": version mismatch
Sep 17 21:39:40 <local0.warn> * postgres[5237]: [3-2] DETAIL:  Server is version 9.5, library is version 9.4.

Sorry for this late answer. From your error message, it seems to me that you simply installed the wrong version of the library?

Comment 2 Martin Birgmeier 2020-03-08 10:14:12 UTC
The proper way to upgrade postgres with postgis is descibed in https://postgis.net/workshops/postgis-intro/upgrades.html

You'll need to do the following to get out of this:

1. Uninstall PostGIS 2.5
2. Reinstall PostGIS 2.4 (postgis24)
3. Run PostgreSQL update (9.4 to 9.5)
4. Use the PostGIS Update instructions, install the PostGIS 2.5 stuff.

This triggered trying to update PostgreSQL and PostGIS at once. It gets riled up at that. Portmaster can get you into some interesting places with PostGIS.

 - This is a postgis upgrade issue *involving* concurrent posgresql update. Reclassify accordingly

(In reply to Harrison Grundy from comment #3)
I second you on this (official) method.

koobs, may I add a pkg-message to describe the update?
