I have just installed OpenWrt 18.06.05 in a TP Link TL-WR741ND router. I have successfully performed the installation and I was able to access openwrt. After that point, I downloaded the corresponding sysupgrade package from https://openwrt.org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_tl-wr741nd_v2
After that point, I lost access to the web GUI, but I'm still able to access through SSH.
I then tried to manually install luci by executing
opkg update opkg install luci
But I received the following error:
Downloading http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/packages/mips_24kc/luci/luci_git-19.363.83297-18c6096-1_all.ipk Installing libubox20191228 (2019-12-28-cd75136b-1) to root... Downloading http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/packages/mips_24kc/base libubox20191228_2019-12-28-cd75136b-1_mips_24kc.ipk Collected errors: * check_data_file_clashes: Package libubox20191228 wants to install file /lib/libubox.so But that file is already provided by package * libubox20170601 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package luci.
My questions are:
- How do I know if the sysupgrade process has finished successfully? Is there any file that I can check?
- How do I install luci to recover the web GUI access?
- Is it possible to roll back the sysupgrade from cli?
