Joplin 1.6.6 (prod, darwin)
Client ID: 1524777f2bbf4c9784ae8e4dbb2c5468
Sync Version: 2
Profile Version: 34
Keychain Supported: Yes
Revision: f58b756 (master)
Error: Unknown profile version. Most likely this is an old version of Joplin, while the profile was created by a newer version. Please upgrade Joplin at https://joplinapp.org and try again. Joplin version: 1.0.164 Profile version: 34 Expected version: 29
This error arises when running
joplin --profile ~/.config/joplin-desktop.
I've done some digging on this particular issue, and there are a few posts which run into this issue. However, I do not have a good high level view for understanding what a profile even is to begin debugging this. As I can guess, a profile is like a different version of your joplin notebooks?
When I use just the joplin-desktop app, everything is fine. I have it syncing with Dropbox, and I can have Joplin on 2 different computers with them syncing in harmony.
An issue arises when I try to make a backup script. I run
joplin sync --target 7
joplin export --format jex "~/backup/joplin
and get my backup file, but it is some old version of my notebooks (maybe 6 months old? I don't know..). When I try to use joplin terminal app (without the
--profile flag), I also get this old version of my notes.
I'm not really clear on what is happening here, and have tried reinstalling both joplin-desktop and joplin-cli, but this was unfortunately not a solution. I will also point out that I did not install this with Brew, but with the recommended installation instructions.
I'd like to be able to run my backup script and have it use the latest version of my notes, not some old version.
