As you can see here development, there are always two branches which are being actively worked on. OpenWrt trunk, which is bleeding edge, codename 'Designated Driver', and the current stable release. Do
cat /etc/bannerto see the exact revision. Use that information for bug reports and questions in the forum. Also use it, to look up information yourself: https://dev.openwrt.org/browser
Install one, e.g. LuCI.
Unless you installed some other log daemons, OpenWrt uses by default busybox-klogd and busybox-syslogd for logging. Both use the same circular buffer, which can be accessed with the command
There are three WebUIs available. All are FOSS, thus you can adapt each of them to your specific needs and likings.

By removing packages you installed after flashing OpenWrt onto your Router. You cannot remove packages on the SquashFS partition, which is included in the image you flashed.
This happens easily with recent firmware on 4MB Flash devices.
You can press-fit an OpenWrt image into this small flash by building your own image, with only the packages you need, tailored for your usecase.
Please send reproducible bugs to our ticket system.
You can check yourself. The OpenWrt repositories are brows-able by web browser. E.g.
You will get the message "Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for…" if you are trying to install packages intended for a trunk build of OpenWrt on a different (older) version, i.e. the package in the trunk repository is for a newer kernel version than the kernel version on your flash.
--force-depends(=Install/remove despite failed dependencies). Mind that this is likely to fail for kernel related packages (kmods).

This scenario: https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=204297#p204297 has three solutions:
see above: Howto connect behind another router?
That be because the firewall-package comes with a configuration already. Certain user chains are created, and packets put into them. When you then later try to catch packets in the
INPUT chain, there won't be any, because they are being put into user chains (maybe something like
lan_input) before that.
Anytime you can type
iptables -Lto see how things are currently setup, but best thing is, to always know your own setup.
cp -f /rom/etc/config/firewall /etc/config/firewall /etc/init.d/firewall restart
Something is wrong with your network configuration. Check Netmask, Gateway, DNS settings. → https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/internet.connection
