Running "update indexes" by clicking within the "browse" storage tab of a repository does not work in Nexus 2.11.4.
The log shows that the path is incorrect:
2015-09-01 16:21:50 INFO [pxpool-1-thread-10] admin org.sonatype.nexus.index.tasks.UpdateIndexTask - Scheduled task (UpdateIndexTask) finished :: Updating repository index "Releases" from path /content/com/foo/project/ and below. (started 2015-09-01T16:21:49-05:00, runtime 0:00:00.827)
Note that the path starts with "/content". It should not.
The request sent from the UI is correct, so this isn't a UI issue:
192.168.0.2 - admin [01/Sep/2015:16:21:49 -0500] "DELETE /nexus/service/local/data_incremental_index/repositories/releases/content/com/foo/project/ HTTP/1.1" 204 0 6
I'm not sure exactly when this regressed, but the end user reported that it worked in 2.3.1, and I can confirm, it did.
