There is no flow_operations_scope table in the database. Only flow_checks and flow_operations.

How can I resolve the issue? Can I create the missing table by hand?

You can try to create the mssing table with the following parameters:

MariaDB [nextcloud]> describe oc_flow_operations_scope;
+--------------+-------------+------+-----+---------+----------------+
| Field        | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
+--------------+-------------+------+-----+---------+----------------+
| id           | bigint(20)  | NO   | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| operation_id | int(11)     | NO   | MUL | 0       |                |
| type         | int(11)     | NO   |     | 0       |                |
| value        | varchar(64) | YES  |     |         |                |

Thanks. Can you also show me the result of DESCRIBE flow_operations?

We get the same error when we updating from version 17.0.3 to 18.0.1.

SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table ‘nextcloud.oc_flow_operations_scope’ doesn’t exist
Update failed

I had the same problem here, couldn’t insert the missing tables manually with the given information. I did a rollback to 17.0.3.

Hi RalfM, how did you make your rollback to 17.0.3 ?

I simply replaced all files from the backup folder. The database was ok.

Thank you RalfM !
For those who may read this, after some research it seems this is the procedure here
