A DSM update or Synology restart broke the PATH settings again and made
cpio unavailable from the $PATH.
This executable is required for the Crashplan package: it needs it to unpack an update.
Googling found me this post where the solution was to copy cpio from within the Crashplan distribution but cpio is already available in
/opt/bin/cpio making the solution even easier by just setting the PATH to include /opt/bin.
(as it should so tools like
ipkg are available)
