I use LS420D, follow a German support site, I installed 2.92 on my NAS without using optware (ipkg). and lately I found how to upgrade to latest 2.94 using Synology Transmission package. I think you used ipkg to install to /opt so I can't help you here. You should figure it yourself if you used ipkg installation. But I think it just all the same and only different location.

But here you go, the Synology packages site: https://synocommunity.com/packages
Go for the transmission package, choose the right architecture for your NAS. I use LS420D, so it is a armada 370. It just a tar ball file in spk format, unzip it and check the package.gz or something. if you already installed v2.84, you just need to take a look at 3 folders: /share /lib and /bin for the upgrade. In /bin, remember to delete the busybox (32KB) inside the package, if you copy it into your NAS, it would crashed your ssh cli command, busybox in NAS would be around 600KB.
If you can install transmission by yourself, you can upgrade it too.

NOTE: remember to backup the 3 folders I mentioned above from your NAS. I'm not responsible if you lost your data.

Hi there.

I found your post via Google. I have a Linkstation LS-VL and am trying to install the latest Tranmission on it. Can you give me some advice on it. The German forum NAS Hilfe is dead and I cannot find the Transmission 2.92 tar file anywhere. I am not sure if the 2.94 tar file on Transmissionbt.com is usable.

Many thanks.
