for example at the moment I’m getting almost daily notifications for an update of Nextcloud. I have Nextcloud 3.13.1 on my device. If I would tap on the notification bar and would tap on the presented update button then I would have Nextclod 3.14.0 RC1 on my device.
I did not find any setting why I have notifications for apps that are not finally realeased.
How can I get rid of these notifications?
(I’m using F-Droid to install my apps because I prefer apps that are open source and moderated. In F-Droid I do not get update notifications for Nextcloud 3.14.0 RC1)
But maybe the problem is not the way how I told it:
The notification yesterday included an update of F-Droid. I updated F-Droid just before writing this topic.
After this I dind’t get any notifications even if I restarted my device, though I didn’t update Nextcloud.
Today the notification appeared again with 3 apps to update. Two of them are stable releases. One is Nextcloud.
So my new theory is, that notifications for release candidates do not show up if they are “alone”. Instead they appear if at least one app is a stable release. This would be ok for me.
Thank you very much. You’re right - I’m getting the notification once a day.
But what I do not understand is: When searching for new updates in F-Droid I get a response that there is no update available (Nextcloud 3.13.1 is flagged as installed and suggested; 3.14.0 RC1 is listed but not flagged as suggested).
When I do the same in “Apps” then I get the suggestion to update Nextcloud to 3.14.0.
I would not expect this to happen, when “Apps” would use F-Droid.
You could open a “New issue” in order to add your improvement suggestion in our gitlab. The improvement would be to make a distinction between different types of releases in F-Droid in order not to take into account RC versions of an app.
