[rabbitmq-discuss] trouble to upgrade from 2.6.1 to 2.7.0 on OS X

I'm sorry to hear you are having problems installing rabbitmq-server using

We have had one report of a problem internally, but not with the same symptoms
as yours.

Your note implies that port thinks rabbitmq-server is already installed at the
highest version (although it is hard to tell from so little information),

so let me ask the usual questions:

What do you have in the macports sources.conf file?

(I have:
    rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ [default]

in that order.... please check the *order* of your lines.)

(It appears that 2.7.0 hasn't yet reached rsync.macports.org.)

Do a 'port list rabbitmq-server' (not a search) -- you should see:
    rabbitmq-server                @2.7.0          net/rabbitmq-server
    rabbitmq-server                @2.6.1          net/rabbitmq-server
do you?

Did you do a sudo port sync? Have you done a 'selfupdate' recently?

When I do a port upgrade (after including rabbitmq /releases/macports in
sources.conf and 'sudo port sync') it works fine for me, so if everything checks
out, then you should do:

    sudo port unload rabbitmq-server
    sudo port uninstall rabbitmq-server
    sudo port -u -v uninstall

and repeat the install sequence (port sync, list and install steps) and see what
version you get.

If this continues to be a problem, then please attach macports logs with your
reply, and I'll try to diagnose it.
