Nothing seemed to happen, but now when I run `sage`, I get a warning telling me I'm running an unstable prerelease version, and the header says "Sage Version 4.6.rc0"! I checked `$SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage/sage/version.py`, and in that file the version is duly listed as 4.6. Any idea what's going on?
-EDIT-
The files at `$SAGE_ROOT/local/bin` were marked as parented to the 4.6.rc0 revision of the hg repository for some reason. Thus `$SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/sage-banner` had been replaced with the 4.6.rc0 banner. I had committed a revision to 4.6 before running `sage -upgrade`, so this may have somehow been responsible. Still, I'd appreciate it if someone else could test this.Wed, 15 Dec 2010 19:09:55 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/Comment by pizza for <p>I tried to run <code>sage -upgrade</code> from a built-from-source installation of 4.6.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/?comment=43363#post-id-43363Do you have any other sage programme running by the time you update? Maybe this would affect the process. But I don't think sage would actually "downgrade", but that might happen very rarely.Mon, 13 Aug 2018 18:01:14 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/?comment=43363#post-id-43363Comment by John Palmieri for <p>I tried to run <code>sage -upgrade</code> from a built-from-source installation of 4.6.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/?comment=43386#post-id-43386@pizza: I think that replying to comments that are 8 years old is probably not helpful. This one in particular deals with upgrading Sage, a procedure that has changed dramatically since version 4.6 in 2010.Thu, 16 Aug 2018 03:41:36 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/?comment=43386#post-id-43386Comment by John Palmieri for <p>I tried to run <code>sage -upgrade</code> from a built-from-source installation of 4.6.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/?comment=22385#post-id-22385I just took a vanilla, built-from-scratch, copy of Sage 4.6, ran "./sage -upgrade", and nothing changed for me. The banner is still the 4.6 banner, the Mercurial logs show no changes, and no new spkg's were installed.Sat, 18 Dec 2010 00:58:47 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7816/sage-upgrade-downgrades-from-46-to-46rc0/?comment=22385#post-id-22385
