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.

Gitea 1.9.4 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 / ARM)

Gitea 1.9.4 has been released so I updated the apps/add-ons for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 & ARM):

SABnzbd 2.3.9 (ReadyNAS OS 6 All Platforms)

SABnzbd 2.3.9 is now available for ReadyNAS OS 6 on the x86 and ARM platforms. Of course those versions also include (or build on install) the latest version of sabyenc.
So, here are the addons:

Pi-Hole Ad-Block 4.3.1 (ReadyNAS OS 6 ARM & x86)


The ad blocking DNS service Pi-Hole has been updated to version 4.3.1 so I updated to app for ReadyNAS OS 6 accordingly:

Please note: Since Pi-Hole was developed for the Raspberry Pi it uses some paths for it’s web interface that aren’t compatible with the ReadyNAS Web UI. Thus those had to be tweaked and for that very reason the upgrade procedures using the command line or described on the web won’t work!

NextCloud 16.0.3 (ReadyNAS OS 6 ARM & x86)

Seems like I totally missed Nextcloud 15 so here we go directly with Nextcloud 16.0.3. Since this version included a lot of changes and requires PHP 7.x to run I had to create a new download item to prevent users from accidentally downloading this version without having PHP 7.2 installed. You can get the new app for your ReadyNAS with ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 and ARM) here:
