Cannot delete plugin in 6.1


I added an ingest-geoip plugin in 6.1.3 but after upgrading to 6.2 i am trying to remove and re-install but elasticsearch wont let me perfom the uninstall and throws a java exception

/usr/share/elasticsearch# sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin remove ingest-geoip
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: plugin [ingest-geoip] is incompatible with version [6.2.0]; was designed for version [6.1.3]

I manually deleted the ingest-geoip folder from the plugin directory and reinstalled the plugin and it worked but not sure why the command failed via CLI

It’s a bug. I am terribly sorry that you ran into this and we will have a release available with a fix ASAP.

We shipped Elasticsearch 6.2.1 today with a fix for this issue.
