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I've just upgraded a very outdated 11.2 system to 12.2.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 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...

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...
So, I upgraded freebsd from 11.1 to 12.1 after this I updated ports and upgraded softwares like mysql, php etc. So, most software work even though there's warnings because

I am new to the forums, but not to FreeBSD - please be kind. :beer:

This evening I tested the upgrade process from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.2 since the former is reaching the end of its supported life at the end of this year (2018). The process went fairly smoothly on both my test and production servers and I jotted a few notes on the experience in a Twitter thread...
Over the past few years have spent a significant amount of time (seemingly endless) on port/package maintenance tasks. It seems that we should be able to:
100%: Use pkg for any/all installs and maintenance tasks (if no custom config options are required) -or-
100%: Use ports for any/all...
Last week I tried to upgrade from source from 10.3-STABLE to 11.2-STABLE on my laptop but the new kernel (GENERIC) failed to boot.
I thought that it might be safer to upgrade from binary, so I built and installed 10.3-RELEASE in order to get freebsd-update working and then I...
