AMTM shows an update available for Transmission from 3.00-4 to 3.00-8. The update menu doesn't seem to do much. Downloads a couple files and then goes back to the menu, still shows an update available. I tried running the opkg install command from the command line and spotted a few errors though.

I tried to install transmission-daemon-openssl after that, but it reports that 3.00-4 is installed and up to date. I see the 3.00-8 packages for Transmission listed for Entware, but not the transmission-daemon-openssl. The Merlin wiki still says to install transmission-daemon-openssl when setting up Transmission. What am I missing here?

This is an Entware issue. Entware changed the way they're naming the packages for TRANSMISSION. I fixed this by backing up my transmission .conf files, and uninstalling the old version and installing the new. I made sure the new version used my .conf.

here is the new names of all the packages.

For example, transmission-daemon-openssl is now simply called transmission-daemon. so you have to uninstall transmission-daemon-openssl and reinstall it as transmission-daemon to use the new version.

Thank you for the help! If anyone else comes across this, when uninstalling transmission with opkg, it left my config, stats, resume directory, etc intact. I backed them all up before removing, but was pleased to find out it didn't remove or overwrite them when uninstalling/reinstalling.

Hi, I have the same problem so i tried to uninstall Transmission but i couldn't. I'm noob and new working with entware.
I open a terminal window and i write "opkg remove transmission" but it didn't work. I don't know what i am doing wrong.
Could anybody tell me what i have to do from the beginning?
Thanks
