As mentioned by grisu48 in topic I can’t update the version Nextcloud 27.1.0 RC3 already, during the manual update in the CLI of version 27.0.6 to 27.0.7 the following error ocurred at the check for expected files:
xpp@Server:/var/www/nextcloud/updater$ sudo -u www-data php updater.phar Nextcloud Updater - version: v26.0.0beta2-9-g64e2e4c dirty Current version is 26.0.6. Update to Nextcloud 26.0.7 available.

Once the four mentioned files are deleted, the update runs through without problems.
As far as I can see, these four files are standard files of the nextcloud program directory having the exact same time stamp as all other files in this directory! This is valid at least starting with version 27.0.6.
Somehow it seems the updater
check files list is NOT updated. (Maybe that is why the Nextcloud Updater version is called dirty. )
