Nextcloud 21 does not appear in the updater

Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): replace me
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): OpenSUSE Leap 15.2
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): 2.4.43
PHP version (eg, 7.4): 7.4.6

I’d like to update to Nextcloud 21. I set the update channel to beta in order to get the update, however, the only version available seems to be 20.0.8 RC1:
Do I need to upgrade to this version first before I can install 21?
Thank you for your help

After update to 20.0.8 RC1, I could update to NC 21

The same confusion with each new release

Thank you for that. It’s the answer I was looking for. I had the same thing going on in my updater. Trying it now.

For anyone looking here for solution, Enable the “Update notification” app (if disabled) and in Settings/Overview switch to the beta channel so that you can update to the stable new version :slight_smile:

Hi there, I had same problem.

So, I’m doing manual upgrade:

  1. systemctl stop apache2
  2. (my nextcloud instance located in /var/www/html) cd /var/www
  3. mv html html-old
  4. download and unzip nextcloud (
  5. mv nextcloud html
    5.9) cp html-old/config/config.php html/config/
  6. cp -a html-old/data html/
  7. copy your apps from html-old/apps
  8. chown -R www-data:www-data html; find html/ -type d -exec chmod 750 {} ;; find html/ -type f -exec chmod 640 {} ;;
  9. systemctl start apache2
  10. cd html
  11. sudo -u www-data php occ upgrade
    wait and…

    it works!

In my case (docker container from, I just had to run updater.phar and follow instructions. Then replace the container with the latest one.
Finally ran some occ maintenance commands which were suggested in the system overview tab.
