No more apps after update

Hello, my server is configured to get updates once a week and the latest one happened last night (Oct. 2). Now, many of the apps do not show anymore. For example calendar, decks. I still can see files and activity. When trying to load the apps list from the upper right menu, nothing happens for a long time and eventually I am shown a list, but it does not contain calendar and decks, for example.

In the log (via GUI) :

Warning appstoreFetcher Could not connect to appstore: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 60000 milliseconds with 2942188 bytes received (see for

When I open that json URL, I do get a page with some data, however, trying to load it via I get:

Invalid JSON Data Or Invalid JSON URL.

I am not a programmer, but this does not look quite right to me …

Can you connect to the appstore ( from your server (wget, curl) from command line? I’d also try in such cases first on my browser, in case the server is not reachable (maintenance etc.).

Can you say what was updated? Nextcloud, apps, operating system?

Sorry, I cross-posted here as well: No more apps after update · Issue #2109 · nextcloud/vm · GitHub

Eventually I was able to re-install all apps and the data was thankfully still there. It appears there are plans to improve the behaviour during the upgrade cycle.

When I update through command line, this already updates everything. Not sure if that is a problem with the webinterface, or if that just happens if there is an issue with the connection to the appstore just during the upgrade.

Yes, the VM script usually updates everything as well.
