SharePoint 2013, Server in the Farm show “Upgrade Available”

 

Background

SharePoint 2013 was installed and updated with patches that give you the version 15.0.4433.1506.  After all the server install is complete, you will notice that the Servers in the Farm displayes “Upgrade Available”, as well as following warning “To get more detailed information about the local upgrade status, run: stsadm.exe -o localupgradestatus

When you follow above steps or look up the Upgrade Status screens on the Central administration, everything looks good, yet the farm status continues to show, Upgrade Available.

 

Issue

I did not face any functional issues but was just annoyed by the status warnings.

Solution

Hello,

Did you install only a single Sharepoint server or a Sharepoint server farm with two or more nodes? Did the issue occur only on one server or every installed server?

Also I would like to ask you, have you run the following command on the Sharepoint server?

(get-spserver $env:computername).NeedsUpgrade

And if so, did you receive an output of "False" or "True"?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Buddha,

This was a Single Server Farm.

I ran the STSADM -o localupgradestatus which I believe might be your PowerShell command equivalent.

The output was 0 (False)
