seems there is an issue with akonadi on TW if you are using postgres as

Well, I did not know that page, but this is basically how I proceeded as
well. Important is to keep the locale-setting to the one the akonadi-db is
created (usually en_US.UTF-8). I hit that trap....

Now akonadi is working again

Writing this *after* todays upgrade, before reboot!

Here are my notes (given, you have backups):

export OLD=11
export NEW=12
sudo zyp in postgresql$NEW-contrib
# stop akonadi
akonadictl stop
# move away old db
mv $HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data $HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data_$OLD
# create new db
/usr/lib/postgresql$NEW/bin/initdb --pgdata=$HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data
# check upgrade
/usr/lib/postgresql$NEW/bin/pg_upgrade -b /usr/lib/postgresql$OLD/bin -B
/usr/lib/postgresql$NEW/bin -d $HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data_$OLD -D
$HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data --check
# perform upgrade, if no issues
/usr/lib/postgresql$NEW/bin/pg_upgrade -b /usr/lib/postgresql$OLD/bin -B
/usr/lib/postgresql$NEW/bin -d $HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data_$OLD -D
# start akonadi
akonadictl start
# check consistency
akonadictl fsck

Last command took about 20 minutes for

$ du -sh .local/share/akonadi/db_data
32G .local/share/akonadi/db_data
