I was hit by this problem as well, and to be concrete in case it
can help others, I resolved the problem by putting the following
into /var/www/owncloud/config/config.php on the server

  'minimum.supported.desktop.version' => '1.6'

inside the '$CONFIG = array (' construct.  At first I tried 1.7 because
I assumed jessie had 1.7 but apparently there is a difference between
the 1.7rc and final 1.7.

If anyone can explain what the disadvantages (if any) will be with
this setting, that would be useful.  The 8.1 release notes does not
really say.
