How to update nextcloud on libreelec

I am using the nextcloud addon 2.0.1 from linuxserver.IO on a RasPi 3 running libreelec 9.2.8.
When try to launch the update procedure as administrator I am getting an error message during backup. After hitting the “retry update” button several times, the process continues.
However “extraction” shows a red X-symbol and “retry update” does not help.

I don’t think it is a matter of missing disk space. Shell command df -h shows 10GB available in /storage

How can I find out the reason for this and/or probably perform the update manually with shell commands?

Thanks and best regards,

Try execing into the container and initiating the update via command line. It’s a lot more verbose. The instructions are in the readme

Thanks @aptalca,

not sure what “execing into the container” means.
I did launch:
docker exec -it nextcloud /bin/bash

Where do I find readme?


Found the following solution:

docker exec -it nextcloud /bin/bash

sudo -u nobody php /config/www/nextcloud/updater/updater.phar

  • say yes to update
  • say no to occ upgrade (will not work the default way)
  • keep maintenance mode if ask

sudo -u nobody php /config/www/nextcloud/occ upgrade

sudo -u nobody php /config/www/nextcloud/occ maintenance:mode --off
