nodebb upgrade fails with Error: schema-out-of-date
I have a nodebb instance running 1.1.2 and it has started complaining about schema-out-of-date when I try to start it.
To fix this, I am trying to run ./nodebb upgrade as several other threads here has suggested I should do. However it also fails. Here is the log:

Does anyone have any ideas?
have you tried just running it? does it still give you that error? what version of nodebb? what commit?
Seems like the upgrade script is actually triggering the NodeBB setup script instead... are you missing a
@PitaJ yes I have, when I try running NodeBB it stops with the same message. I am using v1.2.1 (from that tag in GitHub)
@julian you have a point, the output of ./nodebb upgrade looks similar to the output when I am trying to start nodebb. There is a config.json present that was generated and used when the NodeBB installation was working.
Thank you for the replies. I will keep digging now and see if I can find out anything more.
