Why no update notification to 17?

I see in the release schedule that version 17 is available, but I don’t get an “update available” message.

Nextcloud 16.0.6

Your version is up to date.

Update channel:


Update notification app (version 1.6) is enabled.
I am member of the admin group.

Expected behavior: I get an “update available” notification for version 17
Actual behavior: None

This is especially annoying because nextcloud 16 doesn’t sync large files (known bug).

How can I update (without going to beta instead of stable)?

i waited a couple of weeks after 17 came out and never got a notification. i ended up switching to beta to upgrade to 17 then set it back to stable. encountered no issues with it. have seen others do the same.
i know the updates are rolled out incrementally but the wait was too long for me.

They usually wait for a first point release, for this one there was another bug found just after release of 17.0.1, so I guess they didn’t want to push it for this reason yet: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/17846

The incremental roll-out should be done within a week or so.

The stable release is for people whose current setup is already working and don’t want to risk to run into new issues. If you need or want a new version for new features, that is different and you might want to use the described way via beta channel to get the version earlier.

though your question has been asked a few times before. so it would be nice if you would use the built-in search-function of this forum (magnifying glass in right corner of the menu-bar above) before posting.
