Debian 9 client unsupported client version but followed official instruction


#1

I followed instructions at https://software.opensuse.org/download/package?project=isv:ownCloud:desktop&package=owncloud-client but it only installed owncloud-client 2.2.4 which gives unsupported version when I try to connect to our owncloud X server.

We had some hiccups today, but now everything should work again. I performed a quick check using Docker to verify:

docker run -ti --rm debian:9

Did you try the suggested sudo apt autoremove ? I could imagine that a libowncloudsync0 package of 2.2.4 is not compatible with 2.5.4 and thus the system can only choose 2.2.4 while one of the old 2.2.4 fragments are still around.

When you say ‘still the same error’ – which exact error message do you get?

After you registered the repository, can you install one of the other packages from there? E.g.
sudo apt-get install ocqt5121-libqt5gui5

You can also try to insist on the exact version number like this:
sudo apt-get install owncloud-client=2.5.4.11654+oc-515

One of these commands might give more explanation why it does not want to install 2.5.4, I hope.

In any case, I assume that it works for other Debian 9 systems, as our test-suite installs flawless:

If i’m facing such issues i’m always checking the status and the “installation candidates” via “apt-cache policy owncloud-client” to see why other versions are pulled in.
