1.34.4 to 1.35.0 update.php db error on PostgreSQL
Closed, ResolvedPublic



While running update.php (after migrating files) I encounter this error:

Adding index redirect_pkey to table redirect ...
An error occurred:
Error 23505: ERROR:  could not create unique index "redirect_pkey"
DETAIL:  Key (rd_from)=(26) is duplicated.

Function: Wikimedia\Rdbms\Database::sourceFile( /home/canutethegreat/public_html/wiki/maintenance/postgres/archives/patch-redirect-pk.sql )
Query: ALTER TABLE redirect ADD PRIMARY KEY (rd_from)

Commenting out [ 'addIndex', 'redirect', 'redirect_pkey', 'patch-redirect-pk.sql' ], (line 667) in includes/installer/PostgresUpdater.php allows the update to finish without additional errors.

Here is the info for that table:

Added in rMW9d67de01cb37: Postgres: Add PK to `redirect` table... Committer and Reviewer aren't part of Platform Engineering anymore... But tagging the team workboard anyway for their input...

I'm guessing the indexExists( 'redirect_pkey' ) call is returning false, because the index is maybe implicit/named differently... But fails on creation, because it exists/is being duplicated by trying to add an explicit PK

It turns out that somehow duplicate records were created. With help from a DBA (thanks Justin!) we tracked it down to 3 duplicate records. Deleting the duplicates resolved the issue completely. The only remaining question is how the duplicates got created in the first place...?
