Hi,

thanks for your reply.

i'm not that familiar with the NEWS file but if this is shown it's already too late and the new files are already nearly "deployed" or am i wrong?

Furthermore the NEWS file is only telling to use the 8.0.10 from https://people.debian.org/~taffit/owncloud/ where 8.1.5 is also needed before going to 8.2.2

That is probably something you really shouldn't do. I think there is a reason why this check there is in place.

Maybe some one at the oC developers mailing list can tell you more.
