[Solved] panic: Failed to load system translations

Trying to use the cli tool in the gitlab omnibus installation and I am getting the following error:

$ /opt/gitlab/embedded/bin/mattermost -config /var/opt/gitlab/mattermost/config.json -permanent_delete_team -team_name="team012"

Thanks for the report! Confirmed bug from localization push, and this should be fixed in next release.

Im sorry but is there a workaround to this right now, this is hugely frustrating since i need to delete teams and its impossible to do so from the webinterface…

@GoozeyX yes there is workaround for that … you can download the en.json file from https://github.com/mattermost/platform/blob/master/i18n/en.json and run the platform command again.
The platform command for whatever reason searches for the en.json file in the current directory.

@it33 Probably it is a good idea to put the i18n search path information in the config and then initializing the locales after the configuration was loaded.

Thanks @cyball! Very much appreciated. Would you be open to making a pull request to help us improve?

Hey @it33,

there is a new version which fix that:

you should get one of the v2.1.0-rcX ones.

BR cyball :slight_smile:

FYI, release are being moved from GitHub to releases.mattermost.com, where we’ll be hosting downloads for multiple Mattermost projects in one place over time.

The upgrade guide has step-by-step instructions for upgrading to new versions. This issue should be fixed in Mattermost v2.1.0 and higher.
