Notifications Delayed After Version Update

Hello, I recently took over support for a Rocket.Chat server that was setup in 2020 running in docker. The version of Rocket.Chat had not been updated since then so it was a big jump. It was on version 3.0.12 and I updated it to 5.0.3. I completed this by dumping the MongoDB to a file, removing the docker containers, downloading the updated docker-compose .yml file, and then restoring the MongoDB.

All of the user and channels are intact and there are no glaring issues with functionality. However, there have been reports of varying issues with notifications. The main one I have heard is that desktop and web notifications for messages are coming in delayed, or they will get older notifications coming in at one time. All of the notification settings I have are set to default settings. I did disable the ‘Mute Focused Conversations’ setting today to see if that would have any impact, but the server has not been used yet today.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server: 5.0.3
  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04
  • Deployment Method:
  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog:
  • NodeJS Version: 14.19.3
  • MongoDB Version: 4.4.15
  • Proxy: nginx
  • Firewalls involved: none

I have gotten some more feedback and it appears more often than delayed notifications, they are getting notifications for messages they have already cleared. I have not found anything similar to this online. Any help is appreciated.
