Model upgrades with sidecar charms
Models which contain k8s sidecar charms cannot be upgraded from 2.9.0. This will not be an issue from this 2.9.6 release onwards, but any such workloads running on 2.9.0 will need to be redeployed.
How do I upgrade?
There are three binaries that make up a Juju deployment - the client, the server and the agents. To upgrade a running system:
Upgrade the client
Make sure you have the version of the Juju CLI that you want running across the system (controller and agents in any deployed models). If you installed the Juju snap, it will automatically be updated daily from the channel you selected, but you might want to
sudo snap switch juju --channel=2.8/stable for example, to get a particular version. To get the latest binary from your channel:
snap refresh juju
Upgrading the Juju client through other channels
Make sure that you’re using the Juju version you want.
The controller state can be saved to allow for recovery in case the upgrade process encounters a serious error.
Upgrade a Juju server
You can see which servers your client knows about, and their versions, with this command:
juju controllers Controller ... Version azure* ... 2.8.3 jaas ... 2.7.6
You can instruct a server to upgrade itself to the latest version:
juju upgrade-controller <controller>
Upgrade deployed agents
Each running model includes a set of Juju agents which manage the communication between your charms and the Juju server. Your model agents remain at the same version until you ask to upgrade them.
juju upgrade-model <model>
The 2.9.6 candidate release contains an important fix
- LP #1929364 - IP address sometimes not set or incorrect on pebble_ready event
Using the candidate release
juju bootstrap <cloud> --config agent-stream=proposed
Upgrading a controller:
juju upgrade-controller <controller> --agent-stream=proposed
Upgrading model agents is done as usual.
