[solved] I can't update from 25.0.11 to 26

Hello community,

currently I’m not able to update my installation from 25.0.11 to the next major release NC26.
I have updated PHP to version

PHP 8.0.30 (cli) (built: Aug 23 2023 12:00:00) ( NTS )

After that I ran

sudo -u wwwrun php /srv/www/htdocs/nextcloud/updater/updater.phar

and received error with extra files as described here:


I removed the files from the installation directory but now no upgrade is offered:

sudo -u wwwrun php /srv/www/htdocs/nextcloud/updater/updater.phar
Nextcloud Updater - version: v25.0.3-2-gd49ee0d

Current version is 25.0.11.

No update available.

Nothing to do.

It doesn’t matter if I paste the files back into the installation folder or not. Only above message is shown.

What can I do?

Thanks for any help.

Do a php --version and get the version number.
Maybe “php” just calls the old version.

No, php looks fine

php --version

26.0.6 got retracted temporarily, see:

New minor releases are available, try again. We made a fix to the updater but it broke for some other ppl. Another fix was added :see_no_evil:

@jospoortvliet Thanks for the info. Update from 25.0.11 to 25.0.12 started again with the “extra files”-error. But after removing them from the main directory update ran through without problems. Running updater again performed upgrade from 25.0.12. to 26.0.7 without problems.
Upgrade to NC27 has to wait, because openSUSE Leap 15.5 doesn’t offer recommended PHP-8.2 at the moment. But no problem.

Thanks for your support.
