Import to GitLab.com from an GitLab CE instance export: Unable to decompress
When importing to gitlab.com (GitLab Enterprise Edition 8.10.0-rc10-ee 9d8ba67d) a project exported from a local GitLab instance (GitLab Community Edition 8.9.6 ba3d01c1) I get the
The repository could not be imported. error, with the following error description:
tar (child): /tmp/RackMultipart20160719-20726-fevk25.gz-import: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now , Unable to decompress /tmp/RackMultipart20160719-20726-fevk25.gz-import into /var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails/shared/tmp/project_exports/[cut]
If I press
Start import button anyway, I get the
Import in progress page, with no result for at least 40 min. I've tried different visibility setting (the original project is public) etc.
Interestingly the import from the same project doesn't also work on the local instance. I get however a different error description:
undefined method `' for nil:NilClass
and the same behaviour after pressing the
Start import button. Note: I'm not an admin of the local instance, and in principle I'm not interested in import therein.
Let me know if you would like any additional informations or resources.
