Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): Nextcloud Hub II (23.0.4)
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 5.4.0-65-generic x86_64)
The issue you are facing:
I have a nextcloud installation that I am looking to keep up to date.
I updated the application part a few weeks ago and I am now in the “Nextcloud Hub II (23.0.4)” version, no problem to report.
That said, I have a question about updating the OS (Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS currently).
First, is there a way to know if my installation was done via the VM image (provided by nextcloud) or if the technician at the time installed an ubuntu OS then installed nexcloud on it?
Then, are there any known problems updating the OS (latest version LTS 22.04 via ubuntu commands) or is it recommended not to upgrade in relation to compatibility with nextcloud (and this for the case where we would have started from a fresh installation of ubunbtu or the VM offered by nexcloud)?
First of all, thank you for taking the time to read my question and answer me.
My nextcloud installation runs on a VM (an ESXi 7 hypervisor), so with a snapshot mechanism if your idea was to have security for rollback in the event of a problem during an update
As for the second question, I’m not sure of anything, but I have clues.
There is no docker software on the machine so I rule out this possibility.
Then concerning snap here is what I have with the “snap list” command:
Name Version Rev Tracking Publisher Notes
core18 20220428 2409 latest/stable canonical✓ base
core20 20220527 1518 latest/stable canonical✓ base
lxd 4.0.9-8e2046b 22753 4.0/stable/… canonical✓ -
snapd 2.56 16010 latest/stable canonical✓ snapd
So I guess I don’t have nextcloud via snap.
Then if I run a “locate nextcloud”, I can’t find any archives, this makes me think that I may be dealing with an “ALL-IN-ONE VM IMAGE” installation, what do you think?
Do we agree that nextcloud cannot be installed via apt, there is no change if it is listed via the “dpkg -l” command?
Regarding the OS update, I agree not to upgrade from 20.04 to 22.04 if it is still under support.
On the other hand in version 20.04 there are several sub-versions, 20.04.1; 20.04.2, 20.04.3,… is there any contraindication to follow these updates whether I am in native installation or via the all in one VM?
