Syncthing does not update

#1

Post by slaycock » 24 Dec 2016 11:17

Apologies if I'm being stupid and have missed something really obvious somewhere.

I have two servers which I have recently updated to Nas4free 11 which provides syncthing 0.14.13. According to syncthing documentation these versions should have updated to syncthing 0.14.16 but this hasn't happened. The auto update timer is set to 12 hours and the servers have been up for several days.

Is this the expected behaviour.

If not how do I trigger the updates.

Apologies. It should be 0.14.14 not 13. My servers have still not updated and Syncthing is now reporting 0.14.17. There was an update going to 0.14.14 which means that syncing 0.14.13 and versions after 0.14.14 has a few niggles.

On NAS4Free Embedded it can not be updated (only by updating NAS4Free completely). If you want to use new version, you can install Syncthing extension by OneButtonInstaller.

There's a hole in my bucket!!! :lol: It seems that this is what I had under Nas4Free 10 but with Nas4Free 11 having the built in service and the one button add-in lead to syncthing refusing to run.

If anyone can explain how to use the one button installer add-on in Nas4Free 11 I'd be happy. Of course I'm also happy to find out that it might just be my setup that is causing problems.

I have now made several attempts to install syncthing 0.14.17 using the one button installer.

I have used a fresh install of Nas4free v11.0.0.4.3300.

With the fresh install things I have done are

1. Import disk config
2. Import zfp pool and synchronise
3. Install one button installer
4. Install extendedgui
5. Install syncthing extension using one button installer

At this point syncthing is working but with version 0.212.25 and I have NOT looked at or done anything with the syncthing service.

I stop syncthing and fetch the current version using the maintenance feature of the syncthing extension, then upgrade.

I restart syncthing from within the the syncthing extension. The extension reports that the changes have been applied successfully but syncthing resolutely remains stopped.

If the list of current processes is checked then Syncthing does not appear in the list.

Rebooting the server does not result in syncthing starting and syncthing still does not appear in the list of processes.

If I use the console to navigate to the syncthing directory (as defined by the one button installer) the I can issue a syncthing command, syncthing appears to start, the one button extension reports that the updated version of syncthing is running, syncthing appears in the list of processes but the GUI for syncthing never comes up.

If I issue the command syncthing -gui-address="http://0.0.0.0:8384" then I can access the GUI BUT the version of syncthing reported by the GUI is 0.14.13 and not 0.14.17.

So I am now at the point where I'm really stuck.

I's appreciate any advice that can be given on how to use the one button installer version of syncthing on nas4free 11.0.0.4.3300 instead of the built in version so that I can upgrade my servers to syncthing 0.14.17.

@ Slaycock

if you need latest Syncthing

go to https://syncthing.net and grab the latest syncthing binary you want

e.g. -> https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/ ... .18.tar.gz for v14.18 [x64] Version

then copy the extracted syncthing binary to /usr/local/bin

after re-enable the Syncthing Service you have running the latest Syncthing - I'm using this way few Month now without any hassle
(and tested few min's ago on my TestNAS with v14.8)

BUT after re-boot your NAS4free you must copy the actual Binary again - or you can write a small Script to do this

have Fun!
