Unable to install update patch on DSM 6.2.3-25426, loader DS918v104b (Virtualbox)

Recommended Posts

On my VirtualBox test environment I have a Virtual Machine running loader DS918v104b.

Installed it with DSM 6.2.3-25426 but I am unable to update it to Update 2 or Update 3.

When I try, it gives me this error:


I have tried:

- Automatic update to DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 3, this fails

- Manual update to DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 3, this fails

- Manual update to DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2, this fails

- Setting up a new & clean Virtual Machine which I install with DSM 6.2.3-25426 and directly after it finished I've tried updating it. Fails on all above attempts. I even expanded the size of the synoboot.vdi from 50 to 500Mb to test it's size would be the problem, made no difference.


Any idea on how to solve this issue?

Thank you for that, it solved my problem!


Ran into a small problem with these commands though:


7. Copy the file from your upload location to the target location.

# cp /volume1/folder/FixSynoboot.sh /usr/local/etc/rc.d


8. Make the script executable.

# chmod 0755 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/FixSynoboot.sh


Got an error about no such directory exists or something like that.

So I changed directory to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

and executed

# cp /volume1/folder/FixSynoboot.sh FixSynobot.sh

and then applied

# chmod 0755 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/FixSynoboot.sh

Which worked.


Shouldn't the command 7 be:

# cp /volume1/folder/FixSynoboot.sh /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

With the / at the end?


Either way, it's fixed, I now can see

$ ls /dev/synoboot*

resulting in

/dev/synoboot /dev/synoboot1 /dev/synoboot2


And ran the DSM 6.23-25426 Update 3 successful


However I still do see the synoboot.vdi virtual disk in my Storage Manager, is that correct?
