I just updated to 13.1-RELEASE from 12.3-RELEASE using freebsd-update -r 13.1-RELEASE upgrade
I did the first install run, then the second, then it told me to update the ports first.
So, I ran portupgrade -can and I got an error that told me it noticed a major version change, so please do a...
I just completed upgrading a few boxes from 12.x to 13.1-RC4 and kept some running notes in a TXT file.

I have recently tried to upgrade two of my raspberry pi 4 machines from 13.1-BETA to 13.1-RC5, but both of them failed in the same manner.
freebsd-update upgrade -r 13.0-RC5
I did the final installation step and it rendered alot of errors...
This is my first post. The forum is beautiful.
Which is better? Or is there another better method to update/upgrade?
Is there duplication/overlap in these commands?
freebsd-update fetch && freebsd-update fetch install
freebsd-update fetch && pkg update && pkg upgrade
While upgrading packages today, I noticed that the updated graphics/proj package 'proj-8.2.1,1' now has a flat file size of 2.07GiB! The previous version of the package used to be around 450MB. Is this huge increase in file size expected?
Here are the details of the package from pkg info proj...
I am upgrading all of our remain jails to 12.2 from 12.1. Things have gone well up until this morning. I attempted to upgrade a jail and this is what happened.

I was running 11.4-RELEASE-p12 and ran

It seemed to run normally, I did the merges, then rebooted.
When it came back up I did this...

I just upgraded my machine to v13.0 without any major issues. I then decided to upgrade existing ZFS pools. Reading the handbook, I've noticed that for my zroot pool I have to also update the boot code. I'm using EFI based machine, with zroot on ada0. So, I just run
gpart bootcode -p...
So I have these jails now, and I want to install Samba on my www jail.

Let's assume that PkgBase is the way forward.
<https://alpha.pkgbase.live/> and so on.
In addition to the list, there's sometimes discussion of PkgBase in IRC for FreeBSD.
I'd like to figure out how to do an upgrade with the ability to rollback fully if anything goes wrong.
Taking into account the info from the following topics:
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
After upgrading from FreeBSD 12.1 to 12.2-RELEASE, my machine boots and runs fine, but it no longer displays a full native resolution text console on a 17" monitor. I get the giant default 80x25 display instead. Running "vidcontrol -i mode" returns no information at all.
This is a 2015 vintage...
I've just upgraded a very outdated 11.2 system to 12.2. The update itself went without any issues.
However, I'm unable to update pkg:
root@host:~ # pkg-static install -f pkg
pkg-static: Warning: Major OS version upgrade detected. Running "pkg-static install -f pkg" recommended
Today, on FreeBSd-12.1p10, I ran a script that has been working on FreeBSD for years and got this result: env: perl: No such file or directory. Which is, to put it mildly, bizarre. So I checked for perl: which perl | echo $? ==> 1. So, no perl installed. So I checked that:
pkg info -x...
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...
Every day or so, I ssh into my freebsd server and do the following:
sudo freebsd-update fetch
sudo freebsd-update install
sudo pkg update
sudo pkg upgrade
sudo pkg audit -F
Is this all that I need to do to stay up to date (I'm on 12.1-RELEASE-p7 ATM)? and what do I do about identified...
In doing a freebsd-update from 11.3-RELEASE to 11.4-RELEASE, two groups and a user were added.
Any idea what the groups "nofiles" and "tests" are for?
Also added was a user called "tests":
tests:*:977:977:Unprivileged user for tests:/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin
Seems safe enough, but who's...
hi, I've been having this issue for a while on my ver 12 release.
Whenever I tried to upgrade the system, it results a kernel panic on the system and rebooted automatically. I was able to observe the failure point and it seems that system always reboot during upgrade of python27, i can still...
