As mentioned in the documents I was following the path to upgrade Gitlab CE 8.6.6 to Gitlab CE 11.1 and as the upgradation process
1. I have first created a backup of the database on the prest=ent server running gitlab ce 8.6.6
I have installed fresh gitlab ce 8.6.6 through omnibus on new server
I have imported the database in the new server it worked fine.
then I followed the upgrade path by installing the new gitlab over other and reconfiguring
8.6.6 ----> 8.17.4
8.17.4 ------> 9.0
9.0 -------> 9.5.5
9.5.5 ------> 10.0.1
10.0.1 -----> 10.8.4
10.8.4 ------> 11.0
11.0 -----> 11.1.2
Finally when I restarted the application still shows the interface of gitlab CE 8.6.6 and on the server when I do apt-get cache policy gitlab-ce | grep installed it shows me the newer version install gitlab 11.1.2.
for the confirmation i installed gitlabce 11.1.2 on fresh server and imported the database here but again it jumps back to older version
Please could anyone help me out that what actually goes wrong does the databse maintain the gitlab-version due to which it is not able to upgrade it.
