The issue you are facing:

The update screwed up my previous installation, so I download all the files and tried to start fresh, but a fresh installation or any of the backups let me create or remove files. I can’t open the “apps” menu or “users” menu either.

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

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Fresh install
  2. Errors

Anyone? please?

I am a bit confused, you say both that its a new installation and an upgrade, so what is it?

It seems like nextcloud it trying to open an app that does not exist.

Also, can you list all the subdirectories in the apps folder and the output of this sql query select * from oc_appconfig where configkey="enabled" ;?

It should look like

mysql> select * from oc_appconfig where configkey="enabled";
| appid                     | configkey | configvalue |
| accessibility             | enabled   | no          |
| activity                  | enabled   | no          |
| admin_audit               | enabled   | yes         |
| admin_notifications       | enabled   | no          |
| bookmarks                 | enabled   | yes         |
| bruteforcesettings        | enabled   | no          |
| calendar                  | enabled   | yes         |


Sorry, I wasn’t very clear. After upgrading the desktop client stopped working and I couldn’t upload folders anymore. I tried going back to a previous backup, but I was still encountering errors, so I did a fresh install, and it still doesn’t seem to work properly.

This doesn’t make it any clearer.

You upgraded the desktop client, and after that didn’t work you used a backup of the client or the server?

And also with the Fresh install, was it on the client or the server?
Are you currently using the old Installation, the Fresh one, or a Backup?

Can you try to disable the Photos app with: update oc_appconfig set configvalue="no" WHERE appid="photos" AND configkey="enabled";

After that, please go to the settings page (settings/admin/overview) and see if there are any errors regarding wrong files

I upgraded the server by following the instructions in the settings, and the desktop client stopped synchronizing. I tried going back to a previous version of what I had installed on the server, but it didn’t seem to work as expected either. After trying a number of backups, I gave up, and installed it from scratch. I don’t know if this has anything to do with the server, as I’m using a hosting service, but they say this is a problem with nextcloud itself.
I’ve disabled the app “photos” as you suggested, and the log doesn’t show any new errors. I still can’t delete the files that come by default (Nextcloud intro.mp4 and Nextcloud Manual.pdf), they still show but are corrupted. Also the “apps” and “users” section won’t load, all I get is a blank page. The desktop client isn’t synchronizing either, and if I try to force it to sync, it crashes (see image). I’ve changed the permissions of the folder to 777 in case there was something wrong with them. I don’t what else to do. I’m using cPanel, if that is any help.
Thank very much for taking the time to look into this

Maybe you could try to see if the desktop client log contains usefull hints:
