Kibana no longer wants to start - says 2 X-Pack installed


To the best of my knowledge, this instance of Kibana has been running for weeks without a problem. Something may have happened to the server config, but I cannot confirm it.

Long story short, when starting, Kibana now reports this error:

However when listing the plugins using kibana-plugin list, this is what I get:

$ sudo /usr/share/kibana/bin/kibana-plugin list

Any thoughts?

Have you updated Kibana to 6.3? if so you must deinstall the x-pack plugin because x-pack is no part of every installation


Yeah, definitely looks like this was updated to use Kibana 6.3, as xpack is only found in the node_modules directory in Kibana 6.3

You were 100% right guys. Someone upgraded to 6.3 by accidentally running an Ansible playbook; this installed Kibana 6.3 without cleaning X-Pack.

Thanks a lot for putting me on the right path!
