cant go to dashboard due to package reinstall screen everytime
im on the 19th June nanobsd snap and there was a recent patch by Emal regarding package sync etc on bootup but i guess after that now the index.php file always shows me package installation instead of the dashboard, i just have the vnstat2 package and that too on upgrade and reboot, it syncs in console but doesn't work at all as package reinstallation is broken

I committed a fix for this and restarted the snapshot builder run that was active, so the next set of snapshots should include the fix. In the meantime, from the console shell, do this:
# rm /conf/needs_package_sync
And you should be able to get back into the Dashboard.

No, the removal of the file won't cause the packages to install again.
If you want to disable the GUI reinstall, fix/disable the actual check, not the removal of the file. That is what is causing the loop. The file should be removed in that block regardless, if you want to ensure the packages do not get reinstalled again.
