Never mind found solution in this thread here: https://dietpi.com/forum/t/emby-server/3083/1

Modified the following file at line 5224:

sudo nano /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-software

Added the line:

local fallback_url=“https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/$arch.deb

Seems to install now.

Only adding the fallback line should not work. With the fix for v6.23 I added the fallback feature since this can generally happen for other Github releases as well. To fix on v6.22 the following should work:

sed -i 's#"$(curl -s "$INSTALL_URL_ADDRESS" | grep -m1 "browser_download_url.*emby-server-deb_.*_$arch\\.deb" | cut -d \\" -f 4)"#"https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/$arch.deb"#' /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-software
/DietPi/dietpi/software install 41 # to rerun the Emby install

Sorry, yes it was your fix posted in the other thread that acutally fixed this, I had done both but when trying again just by adding the line it did not work.

Thank you for posting the fix. :slight_smile:
