Some or all of the below information will be requested if it isn’t supplied; for fastest response please provide as much as you can :heart:

Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): 27.1.2
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Ubuntu 22.04
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Apache
PHP version (eg, 7.4): 8.1

The issue you are facing:
Recieved message in Administration Settings area that 27.1.3 is available. When I click on the “Open Updater” button, the page refreshes and says, “Page Not Found - The page could not be found on the server or you may not be allowed to view it.” I have no “updater” folder in my var/www/html (nextcloud) folder. I’m not certain whether I accidently deleted at some point. Is it possible to restore the folder and contents to automate my updates? This instance of Nextcloud is a NON-docker install on a LAMP Ubuntu.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Yes

Steps to replicate it:

  1. See narrative

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

No errors related to this problem in log file

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:



Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.


Figured this one out, if anyone runs into the same problem. I downloaded the most recent version of Nextcloud and copied the updater folder and two files into my root nextcloud folder. Then make sure they were www-data:www-data. Ran the update again from Nextcloud and things worked fine.
