OpenERP 7 error after upgrading EDI module

Hello, Any insights on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have been evaluating openerp 7.0 on an Ubuntu server. After installing the EDI module, I clicked "upgrade". This caused an error that now won't allow me to log into the system. I got the same error message (I think) clicking on each link. Then after logging out, when I tried to log in I got the same message again. I'm new to python & anyone's insights would be greatly appreciated. Below is the error message I get when trying to login (hopefully it is formatted in a way that is easy to read):

Your question has gone unanswered for 5 months, so it is probably moot by now. But perhaps this will help others.

I have also experienced this problem when installing or upgrading modules. The answer I have found elsewhere is to use the GUI, go to Installed Modules, and cancel the install / upgrade.

But in a recent case, I tried to upgrade the Base module, and it left things in such a bad state I could not login to the GUI. Every time I would receive the same error you posted.

The solution was to edit the DB directly (e.g. with pgadmin or psql).

There is a table that stores the state of the modules ('installed', 'to install", 'to upgrade'. You can change the 'to install' or 'to upgrade' state thusly:

update ir_module_module set state='installed' where state='to upgrade'

Then I could login to the system, back to previous state.

Now I need to research how to upgrade and install modules without causing this problem. Some forum searches indicate that the source must be upgraded first, and that there is an issue with having started with "demo data".

Wish you good luck!
