Hi

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

Try adding that user:

Code: Select all

adduser pi
Use password pi

Then upgrade apt again

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

Code: Select all

dietpi-software uninstall 44
If you get errors post here, and dont continue.

If its ok, reinstall:

Code: Select all

dietpi-software install 44
