[erlang-questions] Release upgrade of an app without a top supervisor

Dear all,
I'm building a release upgrade however I'm encountering an error during the
release install:

1> release_handler:install_release("1.5.0").
<0.1497.0>: reason: {'EXIT',{timeout,{sys,get_status,[<0.1497.0>]}}}
11:58:30.647 [error] release_handler: cannot find top supervisor for
application setup

It looks like the application setup [1] does not have a top supervisor,
hence the install fails.

The app setup itself has not been upgraded, it's the same app; however, it
is packaged as 1.5.0 in comparison to the 1.4.6 currently running in
production.

Is there any way I can go around this?

Thanks,
r.
