    Hi;

    I noted today that CrashPlan required an update today to 4.5.0036 so i clicked on the Install Button under the Package Updates in my Synology 5.1-5022 Update 5 OS.  After I clicked on the Accept License button, the application stated that another package was being configured and to try again later.  I knew that there were no other packages being installed currently so I ssh’d into the server.  After logging in as admin, I noted that the contents of /var/packages/CrashPlan/ was empty.  The installer had deleted the entire contents of the CrashPlan application.  Attempting to reinstall CrashPlan always gives me the ‘Another Package is being configured..’ message, even after a reboot of the server.  I’m unable to delete the CrashPlan folder even though it is empty as shown by the du command for the /var/packages/CrashPlan folder.  Please advise on how to: 1) Manually install CrashPlan, or 2) Delete the CrashPlan folder so that I can attempt a re-installation.

    Thank you,

    Hi,

    Have you tried rebooting your Synology? That seems to be an issue with DSM.

    Cheers

    Thank you for your reply.  I’ve tried rebooting, and power cycling the NAS.  Both attempts still leave a “Another Package is being configured..” message when I attempt to start/stop any application or attempt to install the CrashPlan application.

    Yeah, that does sound like something wrong with DSM more than with CrashPlan itself.

    There’s probably a process running that you could try to kill with ssh.

    You  could try looking for running 3rd Party packages you’ve installed and cannot stop from DSM’s package manager:

    1. Use “ps” to list all processes or “ps | grep -i XXXXX“, where XXXXX is a process name string you’re looking for, like “Crashplan”
    2. Take note of the PID of that process (1st column, number)
    3.  Use “kill -0 YYYYYY” where YYYYYY is the PID you’ve taken note.
    4. remove or rename the package folder from /volume1/@appstore/ (volume1 may be different)
    5. Reboot using “sudo restart” or “sudo shutdown -halt now
