I am having the same issue running Ubuntu 19.04 LTS (both ppa and appimage versions). I can access the desktop and mobile clients fine, but the desktop gives an error while connecting.

me too, ubuntu 18.04. Client 2.6 just says “No connection to…myhost”

I deleted my .config/Nextcloud dir and started again and it seems to be working

Please where can I locate the .config folder or directory?

I got the same error with my Linux Client. This is what is in my log:

QNetworkReply::UnknownContentError "Server hat \"411 Length Required\" auf \"POST https://192.168.178.2/nextcloud/index.php/login/v2\" geantwortet" QVariant(int, 411)
