Upgrade is totally stuck at “searching for an update for the app “activity” in the App Store” & none of the found solutions (occ commands) works
When trying to reactivate backup it says “Need to upgrade to 13.0.3” and gets totally stuck at “Doctrine\DBAL\Exception\TableNotFoundException: An exception occurred while executing ‘SELECT class FROM oc_admin_settings WHERE class = ? LIMIT 1’ with params [“OCA\FederatedFileSharing\Settings\Admin”]: SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table ‘DB3308447.oc_admin_settings’ doesn’t exist”
So … now I have no working instance - and no data … any ideas how to solve this?
Sorry on coming back that late … had a lot to do (and to rescue my data)!
I’ll just don’t like to leave a question open - so I’ll close it here with following experience and result:
My last planned intention before your question on the database (Select * from occ_migrations) was a clean installation. So I deleted all data from webspace, installed 14.0.3 up to the point where to create accounts, interrupted the routine and simply uploaded the backup.
nearly all data is back
up to 90% of nextcloud functions are up and working
lost nearly all avatars (been able to get 2 back, none of the other accounts accepts upload or else … gives me an endless hourglass)
one client (andoidapp) can’t downoad, it always says maintenance mode is active
looks like nextcloud doesn’t read the adjusted .htaccess (regarding caldav path)
and some other very small problems are mentioned on the settings page which have been corrected in earlier versions and it seems I can’t correct them any longer or nextcloud doesn’t see it.
After all the lessons learned:
webupdater produces some similar core problems over all these years and no one changes the code … so I’ll never try this again
I’ll reduce the addons dramatically => because of name changes and/or compatibility issues I’ve lost half of them (with data left unreadable), and it is a well known problem (updatecheck of addons before upgrading nextcloud is discussed often) but no one changes the code
when the next upgrade comes I’ll decrypt all data first and make the backup afterwards
So, when having a few days off I’ll kill and delete all nextcloud-apps & the cloud itself traceless and will try to set up a new one … maybe.
Actually, it is the webserver and it can be set up that you are only allow to change certain parameters.
After the split up with ownCloud, the webupdater was rewritten and has improved a lot. There are some limitations on scripts that run via web (mostly runtime and memory limits) but also the environment. It would be great if we could detect such problems before. In general it is better when you can run upgrade from command line.
