ES 2.3.0 trouble with cloud-aws plugin


while trying to update my cluster to 2.3.0 I got the following error on re-starting the new version:

elasticsearch starten: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Plugin [cloud-aws] is incompatible with Elasticsearch [2.3.0]. Was designed for version [2.2.0]
        at org.elasticsearch.plugins.PluginInfo.readFromProperties(
        at org.elasticsearch.plugins.PluginsService.getPluginBundles(
        at org.elasticsearch.plugins.PluginsService.<init>(

While this is true as per the readme of the Plugin ( I also tried to uninstall the "old" cloud-aws plugin and install there reffered repository-s3 plugin.
This fails to download the plugin file because it doesnt seem to exist.

./plugin install repository-s3
> Installing repository-s3...
Trying ...
ERROR: failed to download out of all possible locations..., use --verbose to get detailed information

Can I expect this to be available quite soon or should I raise an issue on Github?


remove plugin cloud-aws
then install plugin cloud-aws

Should be fine.

Will try that on my next update attempt. Thanks!

Will this step always be required? It breaks automaticed updates. I seem to having a similar problem with marvel when upgrading to 2.3.0. And the license plugin as well...

Yes. From 2.0 you have to upgrade all plugins.
