    • Unable to install openmediavault-plexmediaserver

      OMV Version 4.1.8-1

      I'm running into issues installing openmediavault-plexmediaserver. It seems that it's looking to install a package that doesn't exist. I did have the plugin installed at one point earlier, but uninstalled it to test something. Now that I'm attempting to add it again I'm getting the following errors:

      The apt sources appear to be correct.

      Is there something I'm doing wrong here? I tried doing an apt clean to make sure nothing was cached but that didn't change anything. The plexmediaserver-installer isn't showing any valid installation candidates.

    • It still failed after that, so I took a look at the detailed error logs and saw it was erroring out as /var/lib/plexmediaserver already existed. I went ahead and wiped that out, then it started erroring out because it was looking for a location that didn't exist. I went ahead and made the directory by running mkdir -p /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DATAHDD/plexmediaserver/Library and the package corrected the permissions while installing. It looks like now it has installed correctly.

      So it seems the issue was that the previous install wasn't completely uninstalled when the package was removed which caused some not so obvious issues during the reinstall. Thanks for the help!
