Pulp 2.12.2 is now Generally Available in the stable repositories:

This release includes bug fixes for Pulp Platform, RPM Plugin, Puppet Plugin, and OSTree Plugin

There is a known issue for upgrading some of the pulp plugins in Fedora only, this is an old issue that was recently discovered and will be fixed in the next pulp release. #2639


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.
