We have identified a critical bug in Elasticsearch 8.13.0. The bug causes all clusters running 8.10+ which are using downsampling or have used downsampling since upgrading to 8.10 or later to fail to upgrade to 8.13.0. The nodes on version 8.13.0 will be unable to join the cluster.

As an immediate mitigation action we are preventing upgrades on Elastic Cloud to version 8.13.0.

Our next update will be in one hour, or sooner if there is a change in status.
