[Android] Upgrading LineageOS 17.1 to 18.1 on my Xiaomi Mi 8 (dipper)

Install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB)


# check if device is found
adb devices
# reboot into sideload modus
adb reboot sideload

Or manually boot into TWRP recovery, holding Volume Up + Power when the phone is off. Navigate to Advanced-> ADB Sideload.

Update MIUI Firmware

Following the docs, I first had to check the Firmware version. I was running V12.0.2.0.QEAMIXM, but V12.0.3.0.QEAMIXM is required.
Download the right MIUI Firmware for your device from https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/dipper/.
Flash the new Firmware via TWRP or via ADB sideload.

adb sideload Downloads/fw_dipper_miui_MI8Global_V12.0.3.0.QEAMIXM_7619340f8c_10.0.zip 

Download and flash new LineageOS image

I’m using the LinageOS fork LineageOS for microG. Download it from here: https://download.lineage.microg.org/dipper/ (MI 8 = dipper)
The upgrade steps are the same as for the official rom: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/dipper/upgrade. In my case only flashing the new image.

[Nextcloud] Docker update 21.0.7 to 21.0.8

And again… a Nextcloud upgrade failed. After a docker-compose pull and docker-compose up -d the maintenance mode won’t turn off. So I tried to turn it off manually, but I still couldn’t finish the update via WebGUI. I also couldn’t find any errors via the log.

docker exec --user www-data nextcloud-app_1 php /var/www/html/occ maintenance:mode --off

So I triggered the upgrade again from the terminal and finally got an exception.

$ docker exec --user www-data nextcloud-app_1 php /var/www/html/occ upgrade

Quick search on google and it seems that the image for 21.0.8 is broken and already withdrawn. Here and here. Great if users can still pull it from the docker repo…

I disabled the user_ldap addon via command line. This site helped me finding the right commands. After another occ upgrade and a few minutes, the instance finally came back online.

docker exec --user www-data nextcloud-app_1 php /var/www/html/occ app:list
docker exec --user www-data nextcloud-app_1 php /var/www/html/occ app:disable user_ldap
docker exec --user www-data nextcloud-app_1 php /var/www/html/occ maintenance:mode --off
docker exec --user www-data nextcloud-app_1 php /var/www/html/occ upgrade

In the end I also stumbled across the official nextcloud blog, where they announce 20.0.9 and that they had problems with 20.0.8…. But if the new docker image is not yet provided, and you can’t downgrade from your broken 20.0.8 back to 20.0.7, this doesn’t help you at all.

[Wallabag] Docker upgrade 2.3.8. to 2.4.2

Just did an upgrade for Wallabag from Version 2.3.8 to 2.4.2. So I opened my docker-compose.yml and changed the image version and ran docker-compose up -d

version: '3'
    image: wallabag/wallabag:2.4.2
    container_name: wallabag-app
    restart: unless-stopped
      - SYMFONY__ENV__DATABASE_HOST=wallabag-db
      - SYMFONY__ENV__DATABASE_NAME=wallabag
      - wallabag-db
      - /opt/containers/wallabag/images:/var/www/wallabag/web/assets/images
      - proxy

    image: mariadb
    restart: unless-stopped
    container_name: wallabag-db
      - /opt/containers/wallabag/data:/var/lib/mysql
      - proxy

    external: true

But somehow after the upgrade my container won’t come back online. Although the log was saying “Provisioner finished”, it could not connect to the database. When opening the webpage for wallabag the docker logs said: “…unable to parse the MySQL grant string: GRANT USAGE ON entrypoint.sh TO wallabag@% IDENTIFIED BY PASSWORD…”

After searching on google I finally found this note on the Wallabag Github page….

“If there is a version upgrade that needs a database migration. The most easy way to do is running the migrate command:”

docker exec -t wallabag-app /var/www/wallabag/bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate --env=prod --no-interaction

After running the db migration everything came back online. So this post is just a reminder for myself that sometimes Wallabag needs a db migration after upgrading. 🙂
