The nginx geoip module
http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_geoip_module.html is using the
legacy maxmind db.
I just read maxmind legacy db March 2018 will be the last publicly
available download. Jan 2, 2019 it will be removed.
https://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/geolite2/

Is there a plan to switch to GeoIP2?

Thanks!
Frank

there is the 3rd-party module that provides GeoIP v2 support for nginx:

Hope this helps.

There is another 3rd-party geolocation module that is based on IP2Location
LITE which is also free.
