Error during synchro with pCloud (used to work great)

Hey I am using Joplin 1.0.201
Sync version: 1
profile: 28

I am using Joplin on my Debian 10 Gnome leptop Dell, Debian 10 Xfce laptop lenovo, Debian 10 Gnome PC, android.

My database is on and I use WebDAV:

Everything worked great for few days. I love Joplin, and I love idea of it. And I am generally great fun but…

for few hours, on my every machine, I got this message every time I try to sync:

Completed: 06/05/2020 02:04
Last error: Error: MKCOL .sync/: Unknown error 2 (409): 409 Conflict

What might be wrong?
Shall I change something in Joplin?
Or ask pCloud support for help?

Are you on a free or paid account?

How many notes do you have total?

How many images, sounds, etc, do you have attached to those notes?

We need more information to be able to help you further.

@bedwardly-down Thank you for your answer.

I am on a pCloud paid account - 2T lifetime.
My directory with Joplin encrypted notes has 899 files.
I am writing notes every day. So I generate one, two notes a day.
I dont attach many pictures.

I am not on a Joplin paid account. I am not sure if there is any, is it?

I wrote to pCloud support and thats the answer:

Thank you for your e-mail.

Sorry for the inconvenience! Our system administrators already fixed the issue, so there should be no problem with WebDAV currently.

Please ask if you have any questions!

pCloud’s Technical Support

Now everything works great again. So the problem was on the pCloud side.
And now it works great again.

Sorry for bothering you and thank you for your patience.

Joplin doesn’t have a paid account. You thoroughly answered my questions and I’m glad pcloud was able to resolve the issue. Pcloud’s free account has limitations on how many syncs can be done per month and Joplin power users have been hitting those limits pretty fast in some cases. Ha
