Nextcloud version: 21.0.1 Latest Stable
Operating system and version: Oracle Linux 7.9
Apache or nginx version: Apache 2.4.6
PHP version: 7.4

The issue you are facing:
Every time I share a folder or a file (everything else works perfectly), the icon of the folder and the icons showing that the file/folder are not showing up when I finish sharing it.
If I reload the page, they show up normally.
Is this a background job that cron runs too?
My cron is running every 5 minutes, configured according to the NC’s best practices manual.

Before you say that refreshing the page isn’t a big trouble:
I have a nextcloud server, which will be in production soon integrated with my AD, containing more than 1300 users.
I have knowledge that refreshing the page is a simple task and it is not a big trouble the need of having to do so.
But the problem here, is for the lay users that will not understand if the files/folders were actually shared or not.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error?: N

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Go to files;
  2. Try sharing a folder/file;
  3. If the icons doesn’t appear, try refreshing the page.

Any suggestions will be very appreciated.

Thank you guys.
