Error and Issue: Upgrading Invoice Ninja from v5.3.81 to v5.3.86 via the self update within the web application console. After the update is completed the webpage reloads and displays spinning wheel and never passes this point.
Questions: Seem to recall seeing something in release notes a few days ago that a recent update affected the database with an expansion of certain field data entries and contained other major changes.
Could these changes be the source of the issue?
Are there pre and/or post tasks that need to be completed in addition to the routine application update?
Thanks in advance for your help on this issue
