Couldn't find anything to satisfy '/tmp/*.ipk'.
Unknown package '/tmp/*.ipk'.
Collected errors:

The .ipk file should be uploaded to the Temp folder on your box m8, the go into the menu and install the .ipk

So am I transferring .ipk incorrectly. Downloaded from new abm 3.0 > 3.1 and transferred via FZ by dragging & dropping into folder tmp which has ?. Am I doing this incorrectly? Everytime I have dragged from folder from laptop to box message appears file transferred.

As you can tell I only do this when it goes wonky.....

If you transfered the file to tmp
press menu>setup>software manager>ipkg install>choose memory/tmp>click the package name, click green

He was transferring the rar files, not ipk files. Would be nice if forum allowed ipk file attachments

I have the instructions on the ABM thread to say unzip/unrar the files. hopefully saves someone else the grief

Thanks to AB for sharing my pain and making it go away. Fortunately only happens everytime there is an update and straight forward ones I can deal with but anything more than 3 clicks is a struggle...……….

Thanks again
