Why was my game aborted?

After my last move, my Android app acted as disconnected.
I was expecting my opponent to win after making a last move even if he had few seconds only to complete the game.
Was he prevented to get the win after my disconection?

You were disconnected because Lichess did a uptade, and when it does, all current games are canceled I think.

Hum maybe
I can't find anybody mentioning maintenance or server restart on Twitter though

From the browser interface I can read:
" Black + 15 seconds
Lichess has been updated
White + 15 seconds
Sorry for the inconvenience!"
So you're probably right, thanks!
I couldn't read this from my mobile app.
