[User Error] Couldn't run query: ALTER TABLE `Order` CHANGE COLUMN `hasShippingCost` `_obsolete_hasShippingCost` tinyint(1) Duplicate column name '_obsolete_hasShippingCost'

I have given mysql database full permissions (including alter), but when i run /dev/build i get this error.

Did you already have an "_obsolete_hasShippingCost" column in your database?

Yes, in the table "order". thanks

You seem to have upgraded at a previous moment. Simply remove the column by hand (or with your preferred SQL application). Columns named _obsolete can generally be removed without problems as they are remnants of old code.

(Not handling existing _obsolete columns could/should be considered a bug in /dev/build)

I have the same original problem and wouldn't have a clue on how to fix it.

The only issue this presents for me is that I get a non specific error while trying to access the reports tab in the backend cms.

Please help!
