I recently came across the `-j` and `-r` options for pkg, and start wondering if there is any reason to prefer one over the other.
Specifically, do pkg -j jid install pkg_name and pkg -r path_to_jail install pkg_name essentially achieve the same thing, or are there any subtle...
There has to be a minimal_tested_target_level or something to have sepperate versions of the package uploaded for different freebsd releases, keeping it compatible.
I prefer FreeBSD 11.4 over newer because of SCO unix SVR compatibility, but a lot of BSD packages, I can't install. This is a main...

I have a system which was running 11.1 which I thought I'd update. At first I just wanted to make sure all the software was up to date so ran pkg upgrade. Unfortunately it's producing the following error -
I'm trying to install urbackup-server package on 11.1-RELEASE system and I get this error:
But FreshPorts says that indeed there is archivers/urbackup-server port. It was added to the ports collection on April 15 so I guess the problem is that it takes time to build packages. And here...
