Pulp 2.12.1 is now Generally Available in the stable repositories:

This release includes bug fixes for the Pulp Platform and the RPM Plugin.

There were 2 potential blockers filed during the 2.12.1 beta: #2591 and #2600. #2591 was resolved by the user, and #2600 was a beta packaging issue. Thus this release is unchanged from the 2.12.1 Beta 1 release.


The Pulp 2 stable repositories are included in the pulp repo files:

After enabling the pulp-stable or pulp-2-stable repository, you’ll want to follow the standard upgrade path with migrations:

$ sudo systemctl stop httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat pulp_streamer goferd
$ sudo yum upgrade
$ sudo -u apache pulp-manage-db
$ sudo systemctl start httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat pulp_streamer goferd

The pulp_streamer and goferd services should be omitted if those services are not installed.
