Hi @rathishvbr, I’m having the same issue, but I found the following sites useful, this is from their GitHub Repository https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-cloud.md#post-install-maintenance.

In short, you just need to go to <yoursite>/admin/ and then you can manage upgrade from the UI, this assume there’s no other admin changing anything on the background on your VM.

@rathishvbr Depending on what you’re migrating from and to, and how much data you have in the database, then yes, there will be a little downtime. Remember to do a backup before!

@hansen Is that take a downtime…??

Hoo! I didn’t know that. So I can update from admin control panel itself. Thanks @hansen

Can’t you upgrade from the /admin/upgrade control panel?
