OJS: Update with git

I updated my OJS to I checked branch 2.8.4 out of git and copied public folder and config.inc.php to this instance. I thought I would have now and next time I can just git pull. But OJS is still telling (wrongly!) me it is and I need to update.
What might be wrong?!

Hi @paf,

You still need to run the database upgrade; see docs/UPGRADE.

Thank you! That worked.
