Upgrade HDP 3.0.1.0 to HDP 3.1.0: Error in Reading Version Definition File

New Contributor

Hi,

when I try to upgrade from HDP 3.0.1.0 to HDP 3.1.0 I get the following error when using the Version Definition File http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/centos7/3.x/updates/3.1.0.0/HDP-3.1.0.0-78.xml.


"Version Definition read error

An internal system exception occurred: Stack data, Stack HDP 3.1 is not found in Ambari metainfo"


What am I doing wrong ? What is the meaning behindern this internal system error ?

Hi,

I found it out myself. You get the error when you are working with an Ambari Server Version that is not compatible with your HDP. In this case: Ambari 2.7.1 was not compatible with HDP 3.1. So solution was to upgrade Ambari 2.7.1 to Ambari 2.7.3, which is compatible with HDP 3.1, by following the instructions https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.7.3.0/bk_ambari-upgrade/content/upgrade_ambari.ht.... After restarting Ambari Server and retrying the HDP upgrade process the

"Version Definition read error"

disappeared.
