For some reason some of the Utilities options are working any more.

My keyboard got stuck and I went to restart it from the Settings->Utilities option. The options for restarting keyboard and refreshing media database do not work, after being clicked it just gives a notification saying it has failed.

I also tested this on my partners phone and it's not working either for her.

I can confirm that the keyboard restart fails with error. Media database refresh: No error message but running media player does not show any reset of the data (it does not empty it's lists). Jolla1 (JollaC): same with keyboard and media refresh

After updating to media refresh failes in Utilities. Commandline specified in answer works. Still would be nice to get a fix

Workaround until Jolla provides a fix:

Restart keyboard

systemctl --user restart maliit-server

Refresh media

tracker reset -r

Actual options for tracker are as follows;

tracker reset -r
tracker reset -e
tracker reset -c

( -r, --hard ~ Kill all Tracker processes and remove all databases ) Default setting in Sailfish Utilities

( -e --soft ~ Same as --hard but the backup & journal are restored after restart )

( -c, --config Remove all configuration files so they are re-generated on next start )
