Use the command line updater because automatic updating is disabled in the config.php

Support intro

Stopped working and shows “Please use the command line updater because automatic updating is disabled in the config.php” message

I tried rebooting the server and running updates manually without any luck.

Any help will be appreciated.

Nextcloud version 21.0.2
Operating system and version Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Apache or nginx version 2.4.41-4ubuntu3.1
PHP version 7.4.3

The issue you are facing:

Can’t login into NextCloud Admin or anywhere else and see this message 2021-06-12_23-31-49.jpeg

After trying running the update from command line - it said no updates available, see https://www.screencast.com/t/EWYe4wJG5edo

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? Y

Hi there, the error appeared probably due to the polls app.
You should be able to fix this by disabling the polls app:

sudo -i
nextcloud_occ app:disable polls

Did you install Hansson’s VM?
I think he wants users run the CLI update
sudo /var/scripts/update.sh
or something like that…

Yes, thats correct but the error message gets shown due to a bug with the Polls app. Hence I have recommended to disable the app which will solve this issue.

Thank you both - below has helped!

sudo -i nextcloud_occ app:disable polls
