So I went to the Maintenance page and in fact it showed the db as version 2.6 so I went ahead and pressed 'Upgrade' and 3 hours later it finished.  The weird UI issues seem to be solved now, and I see previous and new submissions.  Yay.

Poking around the UI, I did hit one '500 server error' when visiting:


the log shows:

[2021-03-05 10:50:17] development.ERROR: Trying to get property 'full_name' of non-object {"userId":7,"exception":"[object] (ErrorException(code: 0): Trying to get property 'full_name' of non-object at /usr/local/etc/apache24/cdash.rogue-research.com/CDash/app/cdash/public/manageCoverage.php:349)

userId 7 is me.

I just checked on my prod cdash 2.6 server and this does not occur there.

Thought on what's wrong there?
