For my Fairphone 3, I’ve been using LineageOS 17.1 with MicroG (the one with MicroG integrated from
here) plus Magisk successfully for a while.
However, today I updated to the latest 20210706 release of LineageOS with MicroG via the builtin system updater. And I see that I need to re-install Magisk, too.
Magisk instructions say that I need to use the Magisk app to patch the
boot.img for my operating system. I already have the Magisk app installed, but

@bege. The instructions you linked to refers to flashing Magisk from a

Magisk releases only seem to have
.apk files. Is there some place else to obtain the

Thank you! Didn’t even know that page existed.
Your question has been answered by yvmuell already.
But I linked that post because the second part is about updating the system without the need to flash Magisk again.
