I just created a 1 click Drupal 8 app droplet and wanted to update it to the most recent core version using SSH.
Here is what I did and what the result was.
Any help is really appreciated.
/var/www/html/drupal# drush pm-update -n Command pm-update needs a higher bootstrap level to run - you will [error] need to invoke drush from a more functional Drupal environment to run this command. The drush command 'pm-update' could not be executed. [error] Drush was not able to start (bootstrap) the Drupal database. [error] Hint: This may occur when Drush is trying to: * bootstrap a site that has not been installed or does not have a configured database. In this case you can select another site with a working database setup by specifying the URI to use with the --uri parameter on the command line. See `drush topic docs-aliases` for details. * connect the database through a socket. The socket file may be wrong or the php-cli may have no access to it in a jailed shell. See http://drupal.org/node/1428638 for details. Drush was attempting to connect to: Drupal version : 8.1.3 Site URI : http://default Database driver : mysql Database hostname : localhost Database port : Database username : drupal Database name : drupal PHP configuration : /etc/php5/cli/php.ini PHP OS : Linux Drush script : /usr/local/bin/drush Drush version : 8.1.2 Drush temp directory : /tmp Drush configuration : Drush alias files : Drupal root : /var/www/html/drupal Drupal Settings File : sites/default/settings.php Site path : sites/default Sync config path : sites/default/files/config_6ZGKwLLTkFulS a3WyKkTdMUo7Tb2jkQLP7aVLV0SklE5ElSV2cYC_ 7HJbGD8W_sMaNoNWP2iHQ/sync
