Downgrades are not supported and my guess is gluster will not start 
because the op version of the volume is higher than the op volume of the 
downgraded glusterfs version. I don't know of any way to lower the op 
version. So I guess you would need  to recreate the gluster volume.

Also, it looks like there are no packages of the 3.4 version for Xenial.

Yes, 3.6.9 is working fine on another cluster, but that one is 
consisting only of two servers and three clients, so it's much smaller.

I upgraded from 3.4 to 3.8 and now downgraded to 3.7. So my guess is 
that if 3.7 is not working for you, 3.8 wont be working either. But you 
could give if a try.

If time permits, I will wait for the debug build Mohammed Rafi K C 
talked about and see if it's possible to trace down the problem. 
Otherwise I will downgrade straight to 3.4. I could try 3.6 first, but 
3.4 was working good after all. Except for giving spurious/false heal 
info, but that was only bothering me, not the users...
