The issue you are facing:

After the upgrade from 16 to 17.0.1:

The output of Nextcloud upgrade page

To login you need to provide the unhashed value of "updater.secret" in your config file.

If you don't know that value, you can access this updater directly via the Nextcloud admin screen or generate your own secret:

php -r '$password = trim(shell_exec("openssl rand -base64 48"));if(strlen($password) === 64) {$hash = password_hash($password, PASSWORD_DEFAULT) . "\n"; echo "Insert as \"updater.secret\": ".$hash; echo "The plaintext value is: ".$password."\n";}else{echo "Could not execute OpenSSL.\n";};'

I tried several times to create the secret key and insert it into the config file, but it is always rejected.

anyone can help me?
