Same server, same credentials, all uploads fail from Android app

Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2): 17.0.2
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): Ubuntu 18.04.2
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Apache 2.4.29 (behind reverse proxy of Apache 2.4.6 on Centos 7.7.1908)
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.2.19

The issue you are facing:

I have the official Android app on a Galaxy S10+ running Android 10. When I used the app on a Galaxy S8+ with Android 9, uploading files (including via autoupload) went smoothly. Now, however, I can’t seem to upload anything to the exact same Nextcloud server using the exact same credentials on the new phone.

I can log in and browse files. Sometimes, I can download successfully, other times I can’t. What I can’t ever do, however, is upload anything. The upload progress proceeds normally, reaches 100%, and then throws the error “Upload failed: Could not complete operation. Server unavailable.”

The part that seems extra strange to me is that I can’t seem to find a single log entry on the server that can point me in the right direction. I don’t know if I’m just looking in the wrong place or if the error is local to the app (where I can’t find any more information than just that one error). I’m happy to provide log entries, but I don’t even see anything from the correct month, let alone related to my issue.

Also, the same server and same credentials work perfectly from the Windows application as well. I have used this same setup successfully for several years, spanning 4 or 5 major versions of Nextcloud. This is the first hiccup of any kind, actually.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): N

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Install Nextcloud app on Android 10 on Galaxy S10+
  2. Log into self-hosted Nextcloud server
  3. Attempt to upload file

I have no solution, wanted to mention I have the same problem. Some pictures seem to upload smoothly here though, but full-size pictures taken with my new phone won’t.
I start to guess it’s a file-size issue. Looking at the pictures that do upload, they all are below 1MB, every picture that fails is more than 1 MB.
