Lessons learned (Updating to version 22.0.0)

I use the Nextcloud app groupfolders for sharing folders with my teammates. It is an "incompatible app" and disabled while the update is running. After the update process, opening NC v22 is a bit scary. The folder structure is empty. All files are lost.
No. You need to log in again with an administrator role, go to the app catalog and install and activate the "untested version" of Groupfolders. Boom.
Same for ONLYOFFICE.
If you have similar findings, please add them to this thread.
@luckow Same here. Caused a bit of a scare I must say. But indeed can be fixed as you say.
The other thing with Nextcloud 22.0.0 is that creating new groups has been broken. And for some reason groups created with the workaround that is there (writing in a new group in a user's group profile) means that groups cannot be seen in the calendar app (e.g. to attach groups to the shared calendar). Apparently there is a fix in Nextcloud 22.0.1.
Kind of is what it is with Nextcloud, sadly...
@eganonoa I've just pushed the 22.1 package, but we don't roll it out automatically yet. Maybe you can see if you manually check for app updates and then apply it, if this fixes the issue?
@nebulon Thanks! Very much appreciated.
The other Nextcloud issue out there right now for us is with Collabora. 6.4.10-5 broke the Collabora integration with Nextcloud when behind Cloudflare. 6.4.10-6 fixes it apparently. That's off-topic for here because it isn't 22.0.0-related. But another example of the Nextcloud whack-a-mole!
@eganonoa I just pushed an update to 6.4.10-9 . Maybe it helps.

@luckow Thanks for this - very handy.
It didn't fix the issue I had with folder sharing with the "Everyone" Group/Plugin, but difficult to tell as I tried what you suggested first.
Then it was only fixed when user's logged out and back in again, so maybe that was all that was needed, I can't be sure, but had disabled and re-enabled the Everyone Group plugin anyway.
