Update in process error

Nextcloud version _22.2.9
Operating system Ubuntu 20.04.4
Apache version 2.4.53
PHP version 8.0

Trying to update nextcloud

I tried from the browser update and it failed and left me with “Update in process” on a white page.
I have found references to this on the net, I deleted the updater-oc… file and tried again in putty with php updater.phar, I got the following and still have the "update in process, below it says it cannot find the files in …/updater/updater.phar but updater.phar is a file not a folder.
Could someone help please

Never mind, I have deleted it, it is obviously not stable enough.
