In the spirit of the post trying to make tbis a more useful sub. I thought talking about our upgrade experiences may be helpful as we’ve all just got our hands on 2.4.4.
So my experience so far:
I’ve just tried to update a 2.4.3-p1 install to 2.4.4 so I could check compatibility with it and php 8.1 for my marketplace modules. I’ve got lots of websites to upgrade for the day job in the next few months anyway.
Went about it in the usual way update the version constraint in composer.json and composer update.
That didn’t work… an error during setup:upgrade.
So it turns out theres a new pre-request and it has to be done before the switch to 8.1.
magento/composer-root-update-plugin needs an update. As the first step. Then you update magento with a custom command.
composer require-commerce magento/product-community-edition 2.4.4 --no-update then you can update as normal.
With a few failed attempts I’ve decided to leave it until the morning now.
None of this information or a link to it made it into the release notes though.
How have the updates or attempt at one gone for others?
