Running git-annex upgrade von a v5 repo fails:

$ git-annex upgrade upgrade (v5 to v6...) (scanning for unlocked files...) (recording state in git...)

git status will show some files to be modified, since content availability has changed and git-annex was unable to update the index. This is only a cosmetic problem affecting git status; git add, git commit, etc won't be affected. To fix the git status display, you can run: git update-index -q --refresh (recording state in git...)

git-annex: upgrade: 1 failed

I have tried to run git update-index -q --refresh in the working tree. This produced no output and the problem above persists.

Also git-annex repair did return without output (after a few hours) and the problem above persists.

Version info: apt policy git-annex git-annex: Installed: 7.20190129-2~bpo9+1 Candidate: 7.20190129-2~bpo9+1 Version table: *** 7.20190129-2~bpo9+1 100 100 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status 6.20170101-1+deb9u2 990 990 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages 6.20170101-1+deb9u1 990 990 http://security.debian.org stretch/updates/main amd64 Packages

Would be happy if anybody could share some insight on how to get that repo to v7.
