Upgrading to 0.164.0 Challenges

I just tried to upgrade my on-prem instance of n8n to 0.164.0. I followed my usual process of:

  1. Stop PM2 n8n instance
  2. Reinstall n8n
  3. Restart PM2 n8n instance

I then jumped over to the Editor UI and…nothing!

Turns out, there are some updates that need to happen before everything restarts and it can take a while.

I was able to resolve the issues and you can read all about it here:
