Instal Syncthing on new Synology DS220+

Despite enabling packages from trusted partners in the Package Center, I do not see syncthing.

This website: mentions the DS220j for an older version of Syncthing.

How do i get it to install?

That is one source where you can get an up-to-date, community supported Syncthing release from. There is also a package provided by Kastelo Inc., see Syncthing Synology Package — Kastelo Docs documentation

@Chris.Karst Is this a source where i want to add. I think this will gone wonderful journey.

There is an essential difference between the SPK from Kastelo and SynoCommunity. The SPK from Kastelo is a closed package with each final version, which has to be installed on the Synology as Update. The SynoCommunity package only makes major SPK updates, such as from v1.7.1 to v1.15.1 currently and the updates from final to final are made internally. However, this has the disadvantage that structural adjustments in the software may result in malfunctions.

For the record, there aren’t supposed to be any such structural adjustments that we don’t account for, or auto upgrade would break for other users. So I wouldn’t worry too much about that.
