Openvpn-openssl kernel error

Hi, I'm new to openwrt. I have a tp link archer v4 with openwrt. I'm trying to install openvpn with no luck. Help please....considering is openwrt for dummy's and luci for dummy's

Archer, which model?

Are you failing installation or configuration?
Are you trying to configure Server or Client?
Did you follow any of these guides?

Archer C50 v4

I'm trying to install openvpn-openssl but gives me a kernel error. Found something similar on another post but not how to fix it.

I will be using this as a client

Ok, seems the builds for the C50 are a bit "special" so there might be issues.
But your Kernel Error is when you "install" openvpn or when you "execute" openvpn? What is the error?

when I install

Collected errors:

  • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for openvpn-openssl:
  • kernel (= 4.14.217-1-d92769dc5268e102503ae83fe968a56c)
  • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package openvpn-openssl.

How do I solve this?

Re-flash the latest stable release:

Only found one version for my router. There are other for different versions but I read is not recommended

If you insist on using snapshots, re-flash the latest snapshot once again.

I loaded the snapshot by error and now I can't access via luci.

wifi is not working only LAN. How can I load the last image it had?

You can use SSH to install LuCI:

Manage to get luci working but when I go to load the previous image it does not have the tap to browse the image.

Is there another way around this?

If you want to re-flash the firmware, it should be possible over SSH:

Manage to load the previous image on luci but now the router won't boot. Not sure what to do now

Nothing is working. Router is on a loop
