Sonarr failing to automatically download NZBs


Sonarr version
Mono version 3.10.0:
OS: FreeNAS 9.10.2-U6
Debug logs:
Description of issue:
Sonarr appears to be finding NZBs to download, but is failing to pass these to Sabnzbd to download.
I am seeing the following type of error in my log file: -

Couldn’t add report to download queue. Death.And.Nightingales.S01E02.720p.HDTV.x264-KETTLE-Obfuscated: Syntax Error after ‘<!’ characters. Line 3, position 4.

I am puzzled why there is a reference to in the error above as I don’t recognise it as one of the NZB indexers I use. I only;y use, and

Here is the detail of the exception: -

Your mono version is too old. 3.10 is ancient.

Word of caution: 5.16 has some issues in it as well, so don’t update all the way to that version. I’m using 5.14 for example.


Ok. Thanks for that.
I had installed the Sonarr plugin on FreeNAS 9.10.2-U6 and while Sonarr itself had been updating automatically, it appears that Mono had stood still.
I have tried updating mono using the pkg installer and it has installed Mono Trouble is Sonarr is not reflecting the upgrade on it’s status page. I presume the plugin had installed the older version of mono in a different location in the jail.
I will have to raise a question on the FreeNAS forum to see it I can get this resolved.

Many thanks for your input.
