Synology “Operation Failed” manually updating package

Resilio Sync released an update last week and on Synology these package don’t auto update. Time to manually update the packages again.

On my DS1515 (more RAM, more CPU) the manual update goes by fine (stop service, manual update, browse for file, upload, start service) but my DS216j, not so much.

Attempting to upload the file instantly fails with the useful error “Operation Failed”.

I tried to re-download the file (was it corrupt)… Nop. Did I select the right architecture? Yep. Decided to give it a go via via the command line. Perhaps a reboot? Nop.

First, make sure SSH is enabled and you can SSH. Oh and pro tip: add your SSH key.

Something along these lines should get you started:

# Transfer the file to the NAS
scp *.spk NAS-IP:
# Connect to the device
ssh [email protected]
# Install it as root using sudo. It'll ask for your psw
sudo synopkg install *.spk
[password]
# resiliosync_armada38x_DSM6_2.7.0.1366-1.spk install successfully
# All good? Then remove the installer
rm *.spk

Somehow this worked… 🤷‍♂️ Not sure what caused the error in the first place. I am guessing the device is a bit low on RAM.
