i have the feeling that there are at least one or two other users struggling with the following message after every ownCloud update (see the topics below for some examples) :
Repair warning: You have incompatible or missing apps enabled that could not be found or updated via the marketplace.
Repair warning: Please install or update the following apps manually or disable them with:
Repair warning: For manually updating, see https://doc.owncloud.org/server/10.3/go.php?to=admin-marketplace-apps
OC\RepairException: Upgrade is not possible
Maintenance mode is kept active
Maybe we can do some brainstorming on how to improve these message (so that these are better understandable for other users) which could be forwarded to the ownCloud team?
Personally i don’t have any suggestions as the messages are quite clear to me and are (in my opinion) already giving more then enough information what to do in such kind of situations. But maybe the two users of the following threads can give some suggestions so i have ask them to give possible improvement suggestions:
Let me be a bit of a jerk: if people is incapable of reading the error message and take appropiate action, it won’t matter what you write there, people will still fail to read the message.
There could be other related problems such as “I don’t know how to disable the apps” or “how do I update the app manually?”, but these problems still persist even if you change the error message, and note that nobody will read a wall of text explaining every inch of what you could do.
Then, the problem isn’t the message itself, but the user not knowing how to do what he wants to do. Maybe I’m crazy, but the first thing I do in those cases is to check the official documentation and / or other related posts. If the documentation is incomplete, they’re free to ask for more information.
Of course people is free to ask whatever they want, but please don’t ask things that can be answer with “did you read the message above?”
But i think we need to first understand why the message wasn’t seen or understood before assuming that people are incapable to read an error message. That’s why i had asked @ping_wang and @shinshuri in the previously linked threads for some feedback if there could be anything improved but it seems no feedback wasn’t given yet.
