I got a new WD My Cloud 3TB. It came with v4 firmware pre-installed, so I downgraded it using the “[Tutorial][SSH Method] Downgrade v4 firmware to v3” article.
Next I want to install the debootstrap package, but the system doesn’t let me. Any idea why?
After the downgrade reset, the web interface says “v03.04.01-219”. Then I do through ssh:
# apt-get update (works ok) # apt-get --force-yes install debootstrap Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: sq : Depends: wddispatcher but it is not installable Depends: wdnotifier but it is not installable Depends: wdmpserver-sq-release but it is not installable Depends: comm-manager-armhf-release but it is not installable E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
When I run apt-get -f install, the system offers to uninstall sq. What does that package do anyway? Am I ok to remove it?
