The issue you are facing:
I was facing this issue and had to solve it by downgrading the mail app to v. 1.14.5

I am gonna take the liberty of tagging @Daphne since you seem to have managed to solve a similar issue before :grin:

Ok, I solved it for now with
univention-app shell nextcloud sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/updater/updater.phar
now I am just waiting to get an official update so I can have a container with an up to date php version…

Dieses Univention Corporate Server Release basiert auf Debian 10.12 Buster.
Release Not 5.0-2

Sorry i do not use Univention server. But I am surprised that PHP 7.4 is included at all and not PHP 7.3 (or your mistake in writing the version of php?).

In the end, Univention is a finished system where you should not worry and possibly outdated software versions. Basically parts of the software are always older than if you build it yourself.

Yeah normally I wouldn’t care too much about which version of php I am running on as long as it works but apparently php 7 has reached EOL

Yeah, I mean… For now it works… Just a shame that we’re missing out on security updates…

No. I think in your server you find in “sources.list”
Debian 10 Buster is still supported: ( Buster is LTS from August 1st, 2022 to June 30th, 2024)

Debian Buster gets security patches from: (Buster) (Bullseye) (bug in PHP 7.3 (Buster) in 2021) (bug in PHP 7.4 (Bullseye) in 2022)

Yeah, ok… I see… I am a bit new to this wonderous universe of docker… But you seem to be right that the containerized php version is still getting security updates… At least…

I had tagged this as a solution but have decided to remove the solved tag since I actually consider this more of a workaround than a solution…

Hi, I think what you are actually looking for is this:
