can someone explain me why i see this errors when updating over luci? For an example here a screenshot:
Got this errors for this packages:
Should i ignore this, or why are there Errors when it is a official release?
i am just able to update over luci as noob
Thanks in advance for an answer!
I saw these orange warnings on new images of OpenWRT 19.07.1 and 19.07.2 until Friday.
I downloaded a new image of 19.07.2 yesterday, flashed it and now, I see no incompatibility problem.
Check this thread too Something Changed luci-compat and jow's reply in particular. The starting point of the OP is different from yours, but this may help.
I question myself the need for packages upgrade in between minor OpenWRT upgrades. If your install is working fine, I would just leave these upgrades where they are. I would like to know what people's take on this is.
Actually i downloaded the Image i flashed a hour before, but as long as every works im satiesfied, justed wanted to update the opk one time ...
Ok i just oberwrited the File and now everything seems to be finde! THX
Make sure to tag this thread as solved
Packages should not be upgraded in general. There are many threads about causing a soft brick of the router when attempting to do so.
If there's a new firmware you should flash it. If you want to update a program (and know it's been updated in the repository), then uninstall it and its dependencies, then reinstall.
What I thought.
I did click these upgrade buttons once and got weird things after. I read some posts here after too.
I have a WRT32X that has 2 boot partitions, so if I screw one install, I can easily boot in the other. I can take some risks experimenting as a result.
If a user can brick a router, wouldn't it be better to have a warning on that page in Luci or just remove these buttons? Is there a strong need for program update in between minor OpenWRT releases? From what you say, the program update button should not be available as default.
I can see this going wrong with new users.
