Cannot install MetaRepository on nas542

Hi there!

I'm trying to install the MetaRepository package on a nas542 (latest firmware) but after I download the web_prefix from and put it into the /i-data/sysvol/admin location (either via wget or via smb access) and refresh in the appcenter webui I don't see a MetaRepository package.

Does anyone have any pointers what I could try or how to figure out what is going wrong? Thanks!

    You have to create a subdirectory zy-pkgs in /i-data/sysvol/admin/ and put web_prefix in that directory.

    Thanks a lot, that solved it!

    I misunderstood the instructions - I thought because I have a nas542 I should *not* put it in the zy-pkgs directory because of this part:

    NAS5xx, NAS326

    (Firmware 5.10+ only) On this NAS there is no subdirectory zy-pkgs in \\<NAS>\admin\. Just add it.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    I have added "zy-pkgs" folder and upload "MetaRepository_20181001_arm_015.zpkg" file, charged name to "web_prefix" and after press cycle and always get "Download list fail".
    Any tips how to fix it?

    You should download the web_prefix file here. (Rightclick->Save as)
