Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2): Nextcloud 18.0.3
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): Linux Mint Tessa (equivalent to Ubuntu 18.0.4)
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Nginx 1.14.0
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.3.16

The issue you are facing:

My Nextcloud instance doesn’t correctly show me the correct max quota for my own account (that also happens to be the admin account). If I set the max quota through occ, the max storage is shown correctly (username and email redacted):

However, if I look anywhere else, this max quota doesn’t change in the files app and the settings:
Files: image
Settings: image

This happened to me in Nextcloud version 17.0.4. An upgrade to 18.0.3 didn’t fix this problem, which I kind of expected…

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): No.

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Use occ command to change admin’s max storage quota (sudo -u www-data php occ user:setting files quota )
  2. Go to Users page and see that max quota was set in user settings
  3. Go to either the files app or the settings and see that the max quota is locked at 2.7 TB (in my case)
