What can I do to make the versione 23 available?

To see the Update to NC23 before 23.0.1 is released, you can switch from stable chanel to the beta chanel in the admin panel overview…

But be sure to have a backup!

When exactly will Nextcloud 23.1 be released as a stable version?

Here you find the roadmap:

23.0.1 should be released at 30/12/21 if there is not found a show stopper…
The roll is step by step, so that 23.0.1 should reach you in the first 2 Weeks in 22.

Okay thanks for all :wink:

i have the same issue. I dont’t get the update to V23.0.1
When I switch to the beta branch I only geht the V 22.2.4 RC3.

Any suggestion…

Thanks a lot


Same here.
In one of my instances I was able to update to 23 on stable last month.
On my other instance I get up to date on stable (22.2.3) while beta channel shows it can update to 22.2.4 RC3.
Are we still waiting for 23.0.1?

Same here. Beta channel only offers 22.2.4 RC3

I have the same problem, I do not see version 23.0.1 although I am in version 23.0.0

I saw 22.2.4 under STABLE channel just an hour ago… Then i did this:

  • shutdown the vm and did a regular backup
  • started vm again and did apt-get updates

Everything was fine like always, but… notifications still say


But the update is not there anymore… 22.2.3 and “Your version is up to date” it say now :-///

Annoying to say it the least.

And from command line based updater i get this from the STABLE channel:

root@nextcloudhome:~# sudo -u www-data php /var/www/nextcloud/updater/updater.phar
Nextcloud Updater - version: v20.0.0beta4-11-g68fa0d4

Current version is 22.2.3.

Update to Nextcloud 23.0.0 available. (channel: “stable”)

Is this normal behaviour (that it sees a major 23.0.0 release under command line updater?

Exact same thing here. As pTmix points out, the command line updater recognises there’s an update available. Hopfully the issue is resolved in 23

Just read in another thread that 23 has been pulled - probably why it’s not showing up.

But I’ve just kicked off the upgrade to 23 via command line. Whoops!

This only getting more odd to me now, and i must say i am not happy or exited by the current situation. Despite the earlier issues mentioned the updater again makes me confused.

In STABLE it show me the 22.2.3.
In BETA it show me 22.2.5 RC1 (huh? earlier it was “22.2.3 RCx”)

Is this normal behaviour these days or do i have issues with my updater not seeing anything in STABLE mode? Why did i never see 22.2.4 release before it bumped?

Actually i did see 22.2.4, but that was a few weeks ago when it was pulled after only minutes.

Really confused here :-/


@pTmix : Indeed, in the recent weeks some version was pulled back after the developers found issues that cause trouble. It seems the developers decided to skip the problematic version number, so that it becomes more clear that the naughty issues have been sorted out. Don’t worry. The numbering irritiation will certainly soon clear up.

Thanks, Tim for your answer… yeah let us hope they will clear this “mess” soon :slight_smile:
There are no way i go final 23 release for the first months to come after this current situation.

I upgraded to 22.2.5 last day, so far so good. Talk seems a bit snappier/faster now.
