How to install Nextcloud?

I was trying to install Nextcloud as recommended here

I started with those 2 lines:

echo 'Install("nextcloud-install")' >> /etc/updater/auto.lua

And I got:

WARN:Script revision-specific not found, but ignoring its absence as requested
WARN:Script serial-specific not found, but ignoring its absence as requested
INFO:Queue install of libmariadbclient/turris/10.2.8-1
INFO:Queue install of php7/turris/7.1.8-1

INFO:Executing preupdate hooks...
INFO:Subprogram output: /etc/updater/hook_preupdate/
Snapshot number 86 created

INFO:End of subprogram output

And then nothing happened for the following 5 to 10 minutes. So I ctrl-D to leave.

Now when I try again I get this:

... (same as before)
INFO:End of subprogram output
line not found

line not found
[string "transaction"]:345: Unfinished journal exists

I tried installing nextcloud via LuCI but with no success, I couldn’t access (I get a 404 error)

Any ideas?


Nothing did not happen for 5 - 10 minutes. It just takes a long time to install and doesn’t keep you posted.
But that is not very helpful, and worse – even if you simply wait for it to finish, the resulting installation is not actually usable because nextcloud_install script fails for various reasons (am writing a post about that in SW bugs now).
