GL-ARM300 - package update fails

Package update fails either from WebUI or CLI. Reboot doesn’t not help.
opkg_conf_load: Could not lock /var/lock/opkg.lock: Resource temporarily unavailable
unable to update / download packages.

I am on - OpenWrt Chaos Calmer 15.05 r47065 / LuCI for-15.05 branch (git-17.136.58961-13aa5ff)

Appreciate any help.

You should move your router to the latest firmware.

I did the upgrade but it didnt go well. Unable to find packages ( minidlna) being used in the latest version so had to go back to earlier one working flawless since a year plus.

If there is no way to fix this issue, i will try upgrade again.

Upgraded again to 2.27 (LEDE Reboot 17.01.4 r3560-79f57e422d / LuCI lede-17.01 branch (git-17.290.79498-d3f0685).

Still same minidlna package was not added which is my primary requirement of this router. Searched the packages but this package is not there.

Is there any latest firmware I can try???

You can test v3 here:

Installed V3

|Model|GL.iNet GL-AR300M|
|Architecture|Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533 ver 2 rev 0|
|Firmware Version|OpenWrt 18.06.0-rc1 r7090-d2aa3a1b62 / LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-18.196.56128-9112198)|

Now Transmission Remote package is not there:frowning :frowning:

Is there a place from Github I can get the package / or from old version ?

thanks Johnex for your Quick responses…appreciate your help.

What is the package called? Can you write me the full name.
Write me all the packages you might need.


This is the package needed on router.

You can use either:

I used all 4 packages in 2.26 firmware.

opkg install transmission-daemon
opkg install transmission-cli
opkg install transmission-web
opkg install transmission-remote

Now i got only Transmission daemon along with LUCI web interface, rest 3 missing

The packages are called:


You should choose if you want to run the mbedtls or openssl versions.

All the v3 packages are here:

they have failed to install and transmission remote feature doesnt work - thank for your time and help, appreciate that.

I rolled back to my favorite 2.263 and everything working fine even opkg update issue has gone after flashing made router to default.

I request to keep / test the existing features of 2.263 in any new builds. I dont know any security related issues with that version but works like a charm.

v2.263 is a old OpenWRT with old package.

The latest transmission packages support OpenSSL and mbedtls, which has improved security, why not use it? The transmission packages without encrypted have deprecated.

They failed to install…

It works fine to install on V3:

Did you forget to do opkg update before doing install @krisnaac ?
