Missing packages in 22.03.5 (strongswan*)


I've just upgraded my router from 21.02.03 -> 22.3.5 (Linksys EA6350v3) and I seem to be missing a lot of packages (specifically: strongnswan*, but there are many others).

I can't decide if this is just a breakdown in package the build process, ie it will eventually be corrected and the missing packages will turn up in a few days time, or is there's a wider issue here (like dropped support for my device tree?

Any suggestions/advice?


I'm facing the same issue with a totally different device -- Netgear R6220 (mips) -- so it seems like a problem with the release. I was trying to install samba when I found out that the samba server package is missing, and more.

The version is OpenWrt 22.03.5 r20134-5f15225c1e.

The luci samba4 package is available, but when trying to install:

"Required dependency package samba4-server is not available in any repository."

More than a month since your post, so what is going on?

Same problem with missing samba4-server package.
I'm on 22.03.5 r20134-5f15225c1e, my router is ASUS RT-AX53U.
When trying to install luci-app-samba4, I get the same error as @matthayichen.
No matter if I try from LUCI or via SSH with the opkg install command.
Does anyone know why the package is missing?
Tried a backup solution with SMBD, but it seems under no support.

Edit: doing some search in the download site, it turns out that the very last release with samba4-server for my platform (mipsel_24kc) is 21.02.07.
Can I download the packages from 21.02.07 repo and install them with LUCI on 22.03.5, or will this break the entire router?

Both strongswan and samba4 builds should be fixed by now.

Just checked.... samba4-server is listed among the packages in 23.05.0-rc3.
Being a release candidate, it is "official".
Will give it a try...
