It looks because the hive version. Do we have any latest hive version and how I have use that one?

@Muthuviji,

What is the command that you are trying to do?

merge into
contacts_target
using
contacts_update_stage as stage
on
stage.id = contacts_target.id
when matched then
update set name = stage.name, email = stage.email, state = stage.state
when not matched then
insert values (stage.id, stage.name, stage.email, stage.state);
