Warning: Update will break Owncloud on Ubuntu 16.04

The repository http://download.owncloud.org/download/repositories/stable/xUbuntu_16.04/ ships now owncloud-files 10.4.0-1+1.1. This version requires PHP 7.1. As PHP 7.1 is neither available in Owncloud nor Ubuntu repositories, the installation is broken.

I figured this out, after unattended-upgrades did its magic. Now owncloud greets me with

This version of ownCloud requires at least PHP 7.1.0
You are currently running PHP 7.0.33-0ubuntu0.16.04.12. Please update your PHP version


it seems to me that they are trying to improve the documentation around the repositories and their limitations in the future:
