Adapt AT 5.20.1 upgrade failed
by Lars Halkjær - Tuesday, 12 July 2022, 9:20 PM

I have tried to update an Adapt AT server version 0.10.5 with framework version 5.18.4 to the lastest (version 5.20.1).

I changed to the "adapt_authoring" folder an ran "node upgrade".

But in the end the update failed.
This is the console output:

This script will update the Adapt authoring tool and/or Adapt Framework. Would you like to continue?
? Continue? Yes
? Update automatically? Yes
Software updates found.

Has anyone successfully upgraded like this or found a way to solve this issue?

Hi Lars,

I think it's this issue: https://github.com/adaptlearning/adapt_authoring/issues/2566

There is a workaround in the issues.

Delete  /root/adapt_authoring/temp/5ed66f731eebb83a186e2a46/adapt_framework/src/core and try again

Hello Olly

Is it advisable to delete the following directory before attempting the update each time:


We've also noticed that courses are only being previewed in either Firefox or Safari, since v5.20.1, Chrome doesn't seem to live previewing to courses.
