By this guide

l2tp is l2tpv3tun package (/lib/netifd/proto/
l2tpv2 is xl2tp package (/lib/netifd/proto/

But when selecting L2TP, in protocol field of interface configuration, it asks to install for package xl2tpd, despite on it has alredy installed. It happens because Luci checks /lib/netifd/proto/, old name of netifd script, today it is renamed for package xl2tpd to

Needs to correct same files to fix it:
First of all
line 23
for _, p in ipairs({"ppp", "pptp", "pppoe", "pppoa", "3g", "l2tp", "l2tpv2"}) do
Insert above line 39
elseif p == "l2tpv2" then

return luci.i18n.translate("L2TPv2")

insert above line 58
elseif p == "l2tp" then

return "l2tpv3tun"

elseif p == "l2tpv2" then

return "xl2tpd"

insert above line 78
elseif p == "l2tpv2" then

return nixio.fs.access("/lib/netifd/proto/")

and next :
cd /usr/lib/lua/luci/model/cbi/admin_network/
cp proto_l2tp.lua proto_l2tpv2.lua

l2tpv2 was renamed to l2tp again, l2tpv3 seems broken anyway.
