CE Install instructions point to EE package
The following link (https://about.gitlab.com/downloads/?version=ce) given in guides like https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/downgrade_ee_to_ce/README.html
Shows install instructions for Gitlab EE rather than for CE. That made me install EE by mistake.
Make use of the
version var that you already set, to show the right package name on each step.
