I was using freebsd-update to upgrade a box to 13.1-RELEASE.
Here is the command I used to start the process...
freebsd-update upgrade -r 13.1-RELEASE
I followed the usual process and when prompted to reboot the first time, rebooted. Now I get this...

I installed FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE last fall with the help of this forum. I haven't updated the computer since then, and have basically just ensured that, with my current install, the OS and KDE work and I am able to use Firefox...
After moving from Arch Linux to FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p7 one major difference that I found was the fact that under all Linux distros there is only one update mechanism which updates both the base and user land packages. For example under Debian/Ubuntu you need to run only sudo apt update && sudo...
FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE. p4 kernel, p5 userland, consistent with <https://bokut.in/freebsd-patch-level-table/#releng/13.0>.
freebsd-update(8) repeatedly fetches but fails to install updates. Rebooted, no better. How should I resolve this?
I would like to implement a detection within a script that gives me an answer if the release is at END OF LIFE or still current.
In a nutshell, I call freebsd-update from my script and I need to differentiate between a legitimate error and the error code 1 returned by freebsd-update when the...
I just patched my kernels for the latest round of advisories. Then I noticed an inconsistency in the patch level:

This one is kind of maddening. 4 brand new servers, all installed around the same time, firewalled to only allow ssh from a handful of IPs, and key-based auth only. It's a fair assumption that none of them were broken into, both based on the access restrictions and the fact the the "IDS" option...
Following guidance from SirDice I've cobbled together instructions on how to run freebsd-update over a LAN rather than directly obtaining the update over the Internet. This would be particularly useful for anyone on a metered on slow connection. The assumption is that the Server has already been...
I was doing some update and discover that update3.freebsd.org doesn't resolve anymore.
Is it a permanent issue?
update1, update2, update4, update5 are all online and in sync with the same content :)
In the past, I could choose to extract the base source code in the /usr/src during the installation, or download it afterward and extract it after installation.
In case of RELEASE, it was possible to update the /usr/src with freebsd-update, i.e. without using subversion.
After having rebooted I ran the final freebsd-update install step and got this:
# freebsd-update install
Installing updates...ln: ///var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/os-release: No such file or directory
install: ///var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/rc.d/linux: No such file or directory
I have a note referring to this security alert saying I need to truncate bsdpatch before doing freebsd-update:
: > /usr/bin/bspatch
In reading the SA, I'm unclear if this is still an issue. Do I need to keep doing this in 12.1? How can I tell?
After several freebsd-updates I ran today in an issue with /lib/libreadline conflicting with /usr/local/lib/libreadline. The former (/lib/libreadline) seems to be a left over from a previous FreeBSD version.
After removing the old one in /lib and running ldconfig the bash shell started to work...
usually an upgrade of FreeBSD using freebsd-update is nothing to worry about. Just run fetch and install as documented and take care about the packages. And that's it. But there might be an option to speep up and save bandwidth if more than one system is to be updated.
As far as...
Hi all! how are you? :)
I have a Jail host which contains about 50 Jails. During day-to-day operations, I need to install packages, a lot of these packages are the same (nginx, vim-console, etc), it would be really good if I can make the Jail host a pkg cache server, where the Jails can use the...
I made this on fresh installed system (FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE r354233 GENERIC amd64):
freebsd-update fetch install
which ends up to be unable to boot with this error:
zfs i/o error - all block copies unavailable
system runs on zfs mirror with SSD as cache:
It seems 11.2 upgrade works fine but files missing for 11.1.

I've been trying upgrade from freebsd 12 to 12.1 for the last 2 days without much joy
I was getting a pkg mismatch error because i hadnt upgraded to 12.1
Running freebsd-update with the debug option shows a 404 error on the update server

Today, I got a warning that 12.0-RELEASE-p8 is reaching its end-of-life; however I am unable to patch to 12.0-RELEASE-p10 despite not receiving any error warnings. I only have one virtual CPU for my VPS that I rent, and I would rather not build from sources. I tried scouring the forums, but I...
