Unable to upgrade operator for CSV Pending in Openshift 4

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Why the old CSV is stuck in Replacing and the new one is Pending? For example:

    $ oc get csv 
    NAME                DISPLAY     VERSION   REPLACES          PHASE
    operator.v1.2.1     Operator    1.2.1                       Replacing
    operator.v1.3.0     Operator    1.3.0     operator.v1.2.1   Pending
  • The serviceaccount for the new CSV result in status PresentNotSatisfied:

    $ oc get csv <new-csv-name> -o yaml
          kind:     ServiceAccount
          message:  Service account is not owned by this ClusterServiceVersion
          name:     <service-account-name>
          status:   PresentNotSatisfied
         version:  v1
