Transmission update fails


transmission-daemon_2.84-2.2_armhf.deb update return errors on dietpi v 142 (rpi3).

Chk att screenshot.

What is wrong?


It looks like this package from Raspbian Repo has been modified, expects the user pi to exist on system.

Try adding that user:

adduser pi

Use password pi

Then upgrade apt again

created new user pi with pswd pi
update and upgrade, but…

what is that? :open_mouth:

Not sure, looks like apt upgrade for this package is completely broken.

Lets try a reinstall of transmission, see if that clears its:
Just bear in mind, transmission settings will be reset

dietpi-software uninstall 44

If you get errors post here, and dont continue.

If its ok, reinstall:

dietpi-software install 44

after uninstall&install no new versions found to update&upgrade.
