Owncloud Upgrade 10.8 to 10.9 Error 403 marketplace.owncloud.com

Hello All

I tried to upgrade the owncloud to the latest version manual mode:

Repair warning: No marketplace connection: Client error response [url] hxxps://marketplace.owncloud.com/api/v1/platform/10.9.0/apps.json [status code] 403 [reason phrase] Forbidden

I get on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS this:

Curl is working…

Does someone know what happens?

Best, Fab

I was able to upgrade but

still persists: REPAIR warning: No marketplace connection: Client error respone [URL] hxxps://marketplace.owncloud.com/api/v1/platform/10.9.0/apps.json [status code] 403 [reason phrase] Forbidden

?! no idea… With 10.8 i have no issues…

I solved the first issue with copying back the old apps to the new apps folder.

But error 403 still persists.

Restored old configuration.

An issue?

Best, Fab

PS: wget https://marketplace.owncloud.com/api/v1/platform/10.9.0/apps.json is working and i am able to download… So no connection issue…

People are discussing this issue on GitHub:

Current workaround is to create a Markplace API key and apply it in your ownCloud until a fix is in place.

I found a similar issue on my side after upgrading to 10.9.
To solve I create an account on the marketplace, https://marketplace.owncloud.com/ and I copy the API key to my marketplace configurations.

Can you elaborate how you did it?
I have the same issue and rootcerts.crt removal didn’t work.

Another workaround has been found:

delete from oc_appconfig where appid = 'market' and configkey = 'key';

A configvalue of NULL is now being interpreted as string, and that string is being used to connect to the marketplace, but marketplace rejects it as being incorrect. So if you remove this row from the database with the above command, it should start working as expected again.


Hello Everybody! Thank you so much for the fast feedback. I will register for an api… :wink:

Thank you @ll!!!

Best, Fab

We are preparing a new release for the market app, which would remove the workaround.

I don’t think you have read this thread at all. Here are the solutions:

Workaround #1

Workaround #2

Workaround #3

Install pre release (not fully tested yet)

Market app is finally released on Marketplace

  1. Go to the Marketplace
  2. Copy the API Key;
  3. Open your Owncloud;
  4. Go to the market;
  5. Paste the API Key on Configurations > Edit API Key,

Thanks @Bruno_Cantante !
It worked fine
