Nextcloud 21 update with command line not working, updated php8 before Nextcloud 21

Hi, wanting the new nextcloud 21 i went to updater and beta and received 20.0.8Rc1 so i updated. The bad and obviously dumb mistake i made was updating php8 first. I’ve tried everything including purging to rollback. Now i cant get nextcloud back up and running and again now have php8 installed and I’m just trying to install nextcloud 21 by command line since i cant get into my web updater.

I’ve tried the following to install nextcloud 21:
Turn off maintenance mode
@nextcloudpi:~ $ sudo -u www-data php /var/www/nextcloud/occ maintenance:mode --off
This version of Nextcloud is not compatible with > PHP 7.4.
You are currently running 8.0.2.

Command updater:

Received the following with command

Updating question:
I would like to know if there is any way to just update and/or upgrade to NC 21 with a command line or lines and if so what are they? I have been researching and trying different methods for a day now and cant find a solution. Any help wound be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Sorry I don’t have any other logs as I can’t grab them

Thank you for the reply
Ahhh
So I have no next cloud until I receive the 21 update?

Just thought there might be way to install with a command line

Have you tried uninstalling PHP8.0 and reinstalling PHP7.4. ?

Yep I tried all night the other night to switch back to php 7.4 and php7.3. Multiple different ways.

Then I purged php and installed php 7.3 and got a internal error.
The internal error stayed all the way up until php8 and then got maintenance mode.

Well thank you to everyone that helped on this. I finally got it with by removing php8 and then installing php7.4 and the doing a new update with the command line.
Thanks to @bb77, @JimmyKater, @earth, @Soko and others for there help in this! Here are the steps I took to find a solution just incase someone runs into this. Again I apologize for my poor forum educate on this topic.
