Sorry, I wrote manually the list from a previous advisory, copy/paste error. This is really about MGA7!

Here it is fixed :

MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
No  installation issues.
I was talked into give this update a try, but that's not a nice experience. The wiki link in the list yields nothing, and the recent update bugs give very little info how to proceed.
Googled around and was lead to believe that the SQLite option did not work anymore, and all is needed is just browse to the nextcloud. But when there choosing mysql, one is asked to refer to some nextcloud user/database.
Gave up on that path and tried the SQLite option, and that made me a page where I cn upload files. So should be OK.

Sorry Herman - you and I will have to share on getting a wiki updated sometime.

Since this swill likely be deployed on the below OS version I went ahead and installed it.  This is on a VM.

- cpupower-5.2.16-2.mga7.x86_64
- kernel-desktop-5.2.16-2.mga7-1-1.mga7.x86_64
- kernel-desktop-latest-5.2.16-2.mga7.x86_64
- microcode-0.20190918-1.mga7.nonfree.noarch

I rebooted

- installed Postgresql 11.5 started that
- installed Nextcloud 15.06 started httpd and set up new admin user
- test 15.06 by adding user b2 (because I'm so innovative).
- added text document
- added photo

All worked as expected.

# systemctl stop httpd


The following 3 packages are going to be installed:

- nextcloud-15.0.11-1.mga7.noarch
- nextcloud-mysql-15.0.11-1.mga7.noarch
- nextcloud-postgresql-15.0.11-1.mga7.noarch

2.2MB of additional disk space will be used.

-- restarting service
# systemctl start httpd

went to URL - got the following message

"Nextcloud will be updated to version 15.0.11"

- after it did some work.
"Update to 15.0.11

The update was successful. Redirecting you to Nextcloud in 0 seconds."


logged into b2 user and confirmed photo added before was there and then added another.
logged into administrator account and updated a document that I added, then I added another user to the system and confirmed that worked as well

This upgrade is successful.

An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.


Resolution: (none) => FIXED

Comment 7 Brian Rockwell 2019-09-21 18:10:46 CEST
José Jorge

I went for a straight install on 32-bit and got the message.


It looks like you are trying to reinstall your Nextcloud. However the file CAN_INSTALL is missing from your config directory. Please create the file CAN_INSTALL in your config folder to continue."

We probably need to get a sub-fix out with a fix to the config file for new installs.
Comment 8 Brian Rockwell 2019-09-21 18:45:59 CEST
well the fix is super easy at least.

Using root I created a file in the /etc/nextcloud directory

# chown apache CAN_INSTALL

restart httpd and it works.
Comment 9 Brian Rockwell 2019-09-21 18:46:47 CEST

This 32-bit test was with Mariadb.

Yes installed to "My Maria" by Brooks & Dunn
