Describe the problem thoroughly with as much details as possible so that people can reproduce the issues.

– What steps did you take?

  1. Go to top right corner, click on profile.
  2. Click on “Upload a new avatar picture”
  3. Upload a valid png/jpg
    3.1 I have one JPG that fails for: “The file mime type should be one of the following: image/jpg, image/jpeg, image/png, image/gif.” but the rest say “Success The user has been updated successfully.
  4. Tried with several files and with several users. Tried restarting the server and refreshing the page.

– What happened?

  • Profile picture did not update.

– What did you expect instead?

  • The profile picture to update.

I tested building from scratch and the issue is resolved. I determined the issue was caused by the marketplace application in DigitalOcean. The guide says that version is Debian 12 but it is Ubuntu 22. We ran into several issues with that version. The guide needs to be updated and the marketplace app needs to be upgraded or removed.
