PKP PN Plugin failing in scheduled tasks

I have a few scheduled tasks set up in cron:

# OJS Scheduled Tasks
#0 */6 * * *     /usr/local/bin/php $HOME/www/public_html/tools/runScheduledTasks.php

# OJS PKP Statistics (roda 01:00)
10 1 * * *      /usr/local/bin/php $HOME/www/public_html/tools/runScheduledTasks.php $HOME/www/public_html/plugins/generic/usageStats/scheduledTasksAutoStage.xml

20 1 * * *       /usr/local/bin/php $HOME/www/public_html/tools/runScheduledTasks.php $HOME/www/public_html/plugins/generic/pln/xml/scheduledTasks.xml

# OJS Crossref
30 1 * * *       /usr/local/bin/php $HOME/www/public_html/tools/runScheduledTasks.php $HOME/www/public_html/plugins/importexport/crossref/scheduledTasks.xml

I brought those from my instalation, and the PKP PLN one is failing with the following:

Am I missing something here?

I’ve found that:

Is it just a matter of creating the missing column? Isn’t that like supposed to have been processed?
$table->string('export_deposit_error', 1000)->nullable();

Also, are those scheduled tasks really needed? I remember that previous there was a Wiki with some of those settings, but I couldn’t find it anymore.

Hi @luizborges,

Hmm, installing the 3.x plugin should have updated your database schema. How did you install the plugin?

@asmecher, I just upgrade to OJS 3 and I don’t recall if the plugin was already installed or not, I do remember updating a few plugins using the plugin interface on the dashboard.

I added the missing column to the table and I don’t have errors anymore from that. I’m not sure why it wasn’t created. This is already the second migration database blunder (the other one as the NOTIFICATION default email template record missing).
