That message gets returned when the Meteor tool main “runner” tries to run your app, but receives an internal
"wrong-release" error code instead.
If you’re not running
meteor update though, then the
wrong-release internal error code is being assigned for some other reason. I believe the only place it gets assigned is in the app runner:
So this means
release.usingRightReleaseForApp is returning
false. Looking at the code:
The main reason why this would return
false would be if your current Meteor release is seen as being different than your apps identified Meteor release.
It sounds like your apps
.meteor/release file was updated at some point?
