Your problem
My problem is: Error while trying php bin/console mautic:update:apply --finish

These errors are showing in the log:

An error occurred while updating the database. Check log for more details.

Maybe check your file has been updated? See the file changes here.

Hi Ruth, thank you.

Yeah changing db_server_version from 5.5 to 5.7 in app/config/local.php solved the problem, thank you so much!

Hurrah - yes it might catch folk out who are updating as we realised the issue after the release was made. Glad you got it solved!
