Bug fixes

The usual: fixed bugs and made improvements. You can find the closed issues on Github tagged with milestone ubos-apps-20.

Known problems

In one instance, a Matomo upgrade failed with Error in Matomo: Mysqli prepare error: Access denied for user ... to database .... This problem goes away if the Goals plugin is disabled (go to Administration / System / Plugins).

Note on skipped Nextcloud major version upgrades

If you have not upgraded your UBOS device running Nextcloud for a while, the Nextcloud upgrader may not be able to upgrade your installation in one go. As a workaround, we have introduced packages nextcloud16 and nextcloud15, which contain Nextcloud version 16 and 15, respectively. You can use these packages as an intermediate step to upgrade from an earlier Nextcloud to the current version. This is described in more detail in :doc:/users/apps/nextcloud.
