I've searched the forums, and read a couple of archived threads concerning dependency issues, when attempting to install megasync.

I stumbled onto a solution that may help others. Mega maintains a version of megasync for Debian Testing. You can find it here:

https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/Debian_testing/amd64/

Browsing one directory up from there, you'll find source files, which could possibly be used to compile a 32bit version, but that's beyond the scope of this how-to (or I could simply be wrong).

Once you've downloaded the megasync_4.5.3-1.1_amd64.deb package (or whichever version is current when you're reading this), you can use dpkg to install.


dpkg -i megasync_4.5.3-1.1_amd64.deb

Then,


apt -f install

I don't know what MegaSync is but it sounded interesting so I wanted to have a go at installing it. I downloaded it and was looking forward to seeing what it was, however, my anticipation was short-lived when Terminal returned the following:

┌──(root��kali)-[/home/tommy/Downloads]
└─# dpkg -i megasync_4.5.3-1.1_amd64.deb
dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'megasync_4.5.3-1.1_amd64.deb': No such file or directory

Do you know why it does this and how to fix it?

Thanks
