Can't upgrade x-pack and ingest-geoip to 6.2

If I try to install x-pack it fails saying that it's incompatible. If I try to remove x-pack to install 6.2 and it says it's incompatible also:

/usr/share/elasticsearch# ES_PATH_CONF=/etc/elasticsearch bin/elasticsearch-plugin remove x-pack
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: plugin [x-pack] is incompatible with version [6.2.0]; was designed for version [6.1.3]

I had to downgrade elasticsearch to 6.1.3, uninstal both plugins, upgrade to 6.2 and install them again.. really annoying.. :frowning:

did you specify --purge when uninstalling?


And How to downgrade ES from 6.2 to 6.1.3

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