Description of Issue

I did a fresh install today (not because of any issues) and restored from a day old backup. Everything seems to have gone fine (this is my first time doing a restore) except the About page now shows “There was an error checking for an update”.

From my mac:

From my iPhone:

Try restarting the server.

sudo systemctl restart roonserver.service

I did multiple times before posting.

It seems to have cleared up on its own now.

Issue with their server at the same time I happened to be doing a restore or was it because of my restore?

It’s good to hear you’re up-and-running again. If you haven’t already done so, you may want to change your DNS settings, to Cloudflare, Quad9, or Google.

I already run Cloudflare.
