Upgrade Hive Metastore Database Schema Command not working nicely - says success but actually skips


CDH: 5.13.0

HIVE version:

1 | 1.1.0 | Hive release version 1.1.0 | 1.1.0-cdh5.12.0


when trying to run the 'Upgrade Hive Metastore Database Schema' command

through the GUI (CDH) it reports the following:


Starting upgrade metastore schema from version 1.1.0-cdh5.12.0 to 1.1.0-cdh5.13.0
schemaTool completed
Exit code: 0


However (STDERR) reports sort of the opposite:

INFO metastore.CDHMetaStoreSchemaInfo: Current version is higher than or equal to 1.1.0-cdh5.12.0 Skipping file 1.1.0-to-1.1.0-cdh5.12.0



i want to be on cdh5.13.0 but hive is thinking it's in earlier version.


did i miss a migration/upgrade step somewhere to cause this?

does anybody know how to force an upgrade to 5.13.0?
