Grafana upgrade - another instance is seeding the database, waiting for it to finish

Hi! After upgrading from Grafana 8.5.3 to Grafana 9.5.3, the Grafana service instance cannot start and before that I see message msg=“another instance is seeding the database, waiting for it to finish” . what could be the problem? before this everything worked fine

Welcome @asiamegic

What procedure did you take to do the upgrade

upgrade via RPM package on Centos 7 (with a preliminary backup copy of everything)

Sqlite3 backend or something else?

postgres separate database

So is the previous grafana service still running? Stop the old one and start the new one

only one new service is active . the old service is deleted after the update
