    Try to upgrade to ownCloud6 using the above procedure for Ubuntu 12.04.
    (Had installed OC version3 with Ubuntu SoftwareCenter. That was working well).

    The install procedure for OC6 failed at one point:
    >> sudo apt-get install owncloud owncloud-client
    >> E: Paket owncloud-client kann nicht gefunden werden

    Also the log has:

    >> Vorbereitung zum Ersetzen von owncloud 3.0.0-0ubuntu1 (durch …/owncloud_6.0.0a-0_all.deb) …
    >> Ersatz für owncloud wird entpackt …
    >> dpkg: Warnung: Altes Verzeichnis »/var/lib/owncloud/config« kann nicht gelöscht werden: Das Verzeichnis ist nicht leer
    >> dpkg: Warnung: Altes Verzeichnis »/var/lib/owncloud/data« kann nicht gelöscht werden: Das Verzeichnis ist nicht leer
    >> dpkg: Warnung: Altes Verzeichnis »/var/lib/owncloud« kann nicht gelöscht werden: Das Verzeichnis ist nicht leer

    (If it makes sense I could delete those dirs manually, also I would lost some calendar data!?)

    More log ..
    >> * Reloading web server config apache2
    >> apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
    >>[ OK ]

    Starting with https://127.0.1.1/owncloud/ throws error 404

    The main need it to get the ownCloud Server up and running!
    Any further advice?

    (If helpful I could post the complete installation log file.)

    Sorry, typo .. should be:

    Starting with
    http://127.0.1.1/owncloud/

    Page shows:
    >> Not Found
    >> The requested URL /owncloud/ was not found on this server.
    >> Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu) Server at 127.0.1.1 Port 80

  3. Guenter says:

    Finally it’s OK for the server app after deleting all ‘old’ files/directories so a real fresh install runs well.

    The only open point is:
    >> sudo apt-get install owncloud owncloud-client
    >> E: Paket owncloud-client kann nicht gefunden werden

    Any idea how to get the OC-client installed?

  4. Clément says:

    URL for Ubuntu 13.04 no longer exists! Can you provide an update ?
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:/ownCloud:/desktop
    /xUbuntu_13.04/Release.key

    • Geekster says:

      yes, because the support for Ubuntu 13.04 has been dropped a few months already. try to install it via the Ubuntu 12.10 repository!
