NTGR repos broken for 6.10.2 (hold your updates)

Hi everyone,

Firmware 6.10.2 is out and unfortunately NTGR seems to have broken their package repositories with this release. From here it looks like there was a manual push of an updated package to the repos:

Get:2 https://apt.readynas.com/packages/readynasos 6.10.2/main armel linux-libc-dev armel 4.4.184.1 [774 kB]
Err:2 https://apt.readynas.com/packages/readynasos 6.10.2/main armel linux-libc-dev armel 4.4.184.1
Writing more data than expected (774020 > 773886)
E: Failed to fetch https://apt.readynas.com/packages/readynasos/dists/6.10.2/main/pool/l/linux/linux-libc-dev_4.4.184.1_armel.deb Writing more data than expected (774020 > 773886)

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

This affects many if not all new app installations but may also have a negative impact on firmware upgrades where the ReadyNAS tries to get updated packages from its known repositories. In the worst case this error prevents the ReadyNAS from updating properly which in turn may trigger an automatic cleanup procedure which then starts to remove packages and by doing so breaks some apps. I already informed NTGR about the problem but today being Sunday I don’t expect any immediate action.

For the moment please either don’t upgrade to 6.10.2 or if you already did and ran into problems please be patient until the situation is resolved by NTGR.
