Updating GitLab CE 8.9.5 to latest version from one-click install


I’m trying to get the latest version of GitLab on my droplet. Initially, I installed GitLab from the One-Click Install. I followed some instructions from this question, but I keep getting the same error in my console:

W: Duplicate sources.list entry trusty/main amd64 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/packages.gitlab.com_gitlab_gitlab-ce_ubuntu_dists_trusty_main_binary-amd64_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry trusty/main i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/packages.gitlab.com_gitlab_gitlab-ce_ubuntu_dists_trusty_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

The droplet is running Ubuntu 14.04. Let me know what information I should also provide.

Best regards,

From the CLI, run uname -m to get your arch. You should see either x86_64 or i386.

Once you know what arch you’re running, all you need to do is remove the line that doesn’t match it and then run apt-get update again to sync the packages for your distro.

Normally the sources.list file is in /etc/apt, though you may need to look in




… since that’s where the error is pointing.
