18.0.4, 17.0.6 and 16.0.10 are here! Plus Beta 5 for Nextcloud 19!

Hi @marinela,

I just noticed the blog post states disabling flows for users works with

occ config:app:set workflowengine userscopedisabled --value yes

but after that didn’t work for me I checked the code and found that it should be

occ config:app:set workflowengine user_scope_disabled --value yes

…which works like a charm. Probably the underscores just went missing?


I’m using the nextcloud:fpm-alpine image.

Calling docker-compose pull && docker-compose up -d is not updating NextCloud 18.0.3 to 18.0.4.

Might be due to: https://github.com/nextcloud/docker/issues/1089

If maintainers do

  • a quick

  • out-of-cycle update

  • without changelog and

    • that it is distributed to everybody (instead of this slow-rolling-release cycle they are usually doing)

It is a good indicator for that this release is fixing (“only”) some critical security issue. Otherwise, they’d breathe in and out before, plan it, release it in steps and proudly make announcements, I guess.

Now it seems that this update breaks some installations, which is of course bad, but its probably better than instances and servers taken over or destroyed by people who figured out an exploit to something.

Thanks, maintainers and contributors!

Mmhmm. Unfortunately collabora is vital for me so will be moving back to 18.0.3.

I have NC18 in nginx and collabora in docker since long. It works also after update. And by the way update was very smoth. Why did you have to remove all files in var/www? Maybe the fault is yours and not NC18 update.

How is your set-up and how is collabora installed?

I use the collabora docker. I’ve already reinstalled the docker instance with no success.

Here is the error - https://pastebin.com/gtcHqWgp

I am no programmer so cannot interpret this. I would go back to 18.0.3, update all apps and try an update again. If it goes wrong I would try upgrade from the terminal.

Yes, I’m not going to continue to derail the topic. I had to manually reinstall the files as the web upgrade failed midway through. Thankfully I have a full backup.

All the same, the rest of nextcloud is fully function. It’s specifically collabora with the issue. A full app reinstallation did not fix it, nor did reinstalling the container.

Since I use postgresql, curious on if that’s the issue. I will indeed try a fresh installation of 18.0.4 to see if it was an upgrade issue.

Did a manual upgrade from my backup instead of the web upgrade. Fixed the problem - have removed my previous posts to avoid misinformation.

I need to stop jumping the gun on these things.

Hi @simonspa

Thanks for pointing that out. It happens every now and then that some markdown control characters get lost when the blog is transferred over here to the forum. So maybe that was it again.
I changed the text according to your findings.

Thanks a lot.

Nevermind, after fully reinstalling and importing all of my contacts etc the issue came right on back. Sticking with 18.0.3 for now.

Thank you for the help though!

Hi @Schmu

thanks for fixing it here - but the issue is also present in the actual blog post on the NC website, which is why I addressed @marinela - at least she’s listed as the author…

Here is a statement from the twitter Account:

sadly github is having issues so we didn’t manage to grab the changelog yet… probably at some point today.

Sorry for the very newbie question, in version 18.0.3, this is normal?

occ upgrade
Nextcloud is already latest version


Try switching to unstable and then again to stable branch.

Doesn’t work, both on Docker (crazymax image), and plain ubuntu 18.04.
Anyway, in your opinion is better to stick on 18.0.3 ?

Usually i’d say “apply a bugfix release asap”, but as long as no changelog is published one can only guess if it’s really desired to update…

After trying to upgrade from 18.0.3 to 18.0.4 my instance continues to fail when “Checking for update of app “accessibility” in appstore”

Replacing the accessibility app with the version from Github does not solve it, neither does the version from 18.0.3 that I found on nextcloud.com.

Update went well on my side.
Generally you can have a look at github to see what changed:

Yesterday I upgraded from version 17.0.5 to 18.0.4.
I got an error related to the Talk App.

2020-04-23T20:41:43+02:00 Repair error: Repair step ‘OCA\Talk\Migration\FixNamespaceInDatabaseTables’ is unknown
2020-04-23T20:41:43+02:00 Repair info: No repair steps available
PHP Fatal error: Cannot declare class OCA\Talk\Migration\Version8000Date20200331144101, because the name is already in use in /var/www/nextcloud/apps/spreed/lib/Migration/Version8000Date20200331144101.php on line 54

i had to do an occ upgrade again and enable Talk App after that.
Today I realized that my shared files and folders from a read only external storages does not work. It is configured in Settings -> Administration -> External storages as local and read only. It does not work with version 18.0.4. I have a test installation with 18.0.4 and it does not work either.

I guess this is the problem

I lot of errors in the log because of that. I decided to go back to version 17.0.5.
