What issue do you have?

The synchronisation stopps with the following error:

The password is correct. After the error message the synchronisation starts again. I also created a new app password. Same problem.

A DuckDuckGo search for the error finds posts on the Nextcloud forum dating back quite a while. Nextcloud users say that Nextcloud reports errors if they try to access the server using WebDAV and 2FA is switched on, even using app passwords.

Examples:

As I do not run a Nextcloud server most of what is being discussed does not mean that much to me, but it does seem to be an issue with Nextcloud...

I'm sorry I didn't search long enough. I found a simular problem here in this forum. I disabled 2FA for now. Hope, they fix this error soon.
