Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):

Steps to replicate it:

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:


The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:

I don't use nginx I use apache, and it's failing even if I run it manually so it's not a web server issue.

Sorry but this submission form is NOT displaying correctly in FIrefox so I’m having a real difficult time filling this out. I am trying to upgrade from version 21.05 to 21.07, I first tried the web based updater from within the nextcloud web app but it hung at creating backup, so then I tried to update via occ, same thing. It gets to creating backup and just sits there, a ps doesn’t show anything running. A control-C does
not stop. But there seems to be nothing to stop. Closing the terminal I’ve started it again.
