Hi Cristopher,

My apologies for this mess. You didn't need to recreate the database as it
was caused by missing config.php file after update. It can be solved by
using config.php from the updater backup. [1]
This bug is fixed in the Updater shipped with OC 4.5.4. [2]

Sorry, that my attempts to inform the community about this issue were
