How to fix “Step 5 is currently in process. Please call this command later.”
While trying to update Nextcloud using the command line (e.g., SSH) using a command like
You can see the following error message:
Nextcloud Updater - version: v26.0.0beta2-9-g64e2e4c dirty Step 5 is currently in process. Please call this command later.
No matter if the step that appears to be currently in progress is Step 3, Step 5, or any other step, the solution is always the same: Reset the update by deleting the data/updater-oc[random-string] folder.
Recommended: If you are paranoid about losing data, rename the directory:
mv data/updater-oc* ../DELETEME-updater
Not recommended: You can also delete the directory
rm -rf data/updater-oc*
