When to upgrade Nextcloud?

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online / Other ARM board / …
YunoHost version:
I have access to my server : Through SSH | through the webadmin | direct access via keyboard / screen | …
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

I have a perfectly working version of Nextcloud (20.0.4). It is the YNH package. I notice that the update-notifier is “Disabled” and probably for a good reason.

When is it right to update Nextcloud? Can I Enable the notifier or should I check in with the YNH System Updater and do the update then?

Best wishes all


Only use Yunohost internal (app) update system for that, because integrating a software in Yunohost takes some work (and for Nextcloud, quite a lot), and a manual update would probably break your Nextcloud. Also, after a new release, especially the major ones (Nextcloud 19, 20, 21…), it takes some times for the packagers to upgrade Yunohost package.
However there is no way to be notified if an upgrade is available, except being notified of all pull request on the github repository, or subscribing to the topic here [Nextcloud] A cloud for personal or group use (but maybe announcements are not always made for each update).
So you have to check regularly (using Yunohost internal update tool, or by checking github/the forum).

Nextcloud notifier might be useful for you to be informed when a new official version is available, then you can expect the Yunohost package to be updated in the following weeks (most of the time).


@Lapineige That’s all good enough for me…

Thanks very much
