Upgrade from 3.2.1 fails due to deprecating two flavors of st_dwithin

Reported by: strk Owned by: strk
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 3.3.5
Component: build Version: 3.3.x

Description

Going from 3.2.1 to 3.4.0 the upgrade script attempts to deprecate two versions of st_dwithin, resulting in the second deprecation failing because the name of the target renamed function is already taken.

The same error occurs upgrading to 3.4.0

The target function name is indeed the same no matter different argument names:

# grep 'RENAME TO st_dwithin_deprecated_by' postgis/postgis_upgrade.sql
ALTER FUNCTION st_dwithin( text, text, float8 ) RENAME TO st_dwithin_deprecated_by_postgis_300;
ALTER FUNCTION st_dwithin( geography, geography, float8 ) RENAME TO st_dwithin_deprecated_by_postgis_300;

Judging by the name of the target function this bug might be affecting 3.0.0 as well, it should be verified. I don't know why CI isn't catching these.

The second signature seem to have been added with [ec98bd63e8f255cbdbf6baaed850e6c8b8d57af1/git] referencing ticket #5035

comment:3 by strk, 8 months ago

The two Replaces comments are here:

postgis/geography.sql.in:770:— Replaces ST_DWithin(geography, geography, float8) deprecated in 3.0.0 postgis/postgis.sql.in:4639:— Replaces ST_DWithin(text, text, float8) deprecated in 3.0.0

It seems to me that the fix would be to include the argument types in the name of the deprecated functions, or something like that

Oddly Dronie has no trouble upgrading from 3.2.2 to 3.5.0dev: https://dronie.osgeo.org/postgis/postgis/4824/1/3

But I can't tell the same on my local system:

The difference between CI and my local system is in the hooks being passed.

The working one (run by CI):

  --before-upgrade-script   regress/hooks/hook-before-upgrade.sql \
  --after-upgrade-script    regress/hooks/hook-after-upgrade.sql \

The failing one:

  --before-upgrade-script raster/test/regress/hooks/hook-before-upgrade-raster.sql \
  --before-upgrade-script regress/hooks/hook-before-upgrade.sql \
  --after-upgrade-script regress/hooks/hook-after-upgrade.sql \

Puzzling but for some reason running the raster before-upgrade test hook somehow affects the st_dwithin upgradeability.

comment:6 by strk, 8 months ago

Forget previous comment, that difference was not the real difference, I'm still digging

comment:7 by strk, 8 months ago

I get the same failure going from 3.2.1 to 3.2.6dev

The fix might be just including the OID of the deprecated function in the name, should work fine. I'm going to test this in a PR

comment:8 by strk, 8 months ago

Commit in https://git.osgeo.org/gitea/postgis/postgis/pulls/139 fixes it for me. What I'd like though is to see the CI fail before the fix, which is currently not happening.

comment:9 by strk, 8 months ago

Ok there must have been something bogus with my system because PostGIS 3.2.1 does not seem to have st_dwithin(geography, geography, double precision)

According to the Replaces comment this bug should only be exposed when upgrading from a version earlier than 3.0.0

comment:10 by strk, 8 months ago

The oldest version from which Dronie tests upgrades is 3.0.6 which explains why CI is green. In turn, the reason why Dronie only tests 3.0.6 is, I believe, that earlier versions do not support PostgreSQL-13 which is the oldest Dronie is testing.

We'd need a test for PostgresSQL-12 to get this bug visible in Dronie.

Regina any reason for not re-introducing PostgreSQL-12 testing there ?

comment:11 by strk, 8 months ago

PostgreSQL-12 testing was moved from Dronie to Woodie with commit [56d525e779fa814893a2a3cf772c1980a270b0d9/git]

Woodie PostgreSQL-12 testing seem to pass upgrades from 2.5.7: https://woodie.osgeo.org/repos/30/pipeline/854/9#L9192

PASS: postgis extension upgrade 2.5.7--3.5.0dev!

Interestingly there seem to be no problem with having two deprectated function with the same name but different type arguments. So my problem must have been really due to something else, and specifically to a broken system whereas to go from version A to version B in presence of a view we're hitting two upgrades instead of one, which try to deprecate the same function twice, resulting in an attempt to run the SAME alter more than once.

I guess I'll mark this ticket as invalid or maybe it can become a ticket about idempotency of an upgrade step. In other words: should we allow running postgis_extensions_upgrade() twice in the same database where a view is defined using deprecated functions ? Right now doing so will error out the second time, with this hard-to-understand error.

We could maybe just improve the error to hint about the possibility that upgrade issues need be fixed before further upgrading

Resolution: invalid

I'll close this as invalid, too noisy to be actable.
