Today, I'm feeling a little curmudgeonly. Should I bother upgrading or not?
Bare with me as I set up the background - this really is about FreeBSD... in the end :). If it's too long for you - run away, or skip to the end and make your way backwards...
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T430, a Dell...
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
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 just upgraded from 12.1-p10 to 12.2-p0 and ran into an issue.
The first part of freebsd-update -r 12.2-RELEASE went fine. Then the process wanted me to reboot and run install again to finish it off. That’s where it went wrong as the install process after the reboot stalled on a “No such file...
On my system, pkg within jails seems to complain about the version numbers. I have checked the older posts (mostly from late last year) in this category, but I don't believe they solve my problem.
Issuing a pkg update within a jail gave the apparently common error
But, doing uname...
Some months ago, I had some problems when upgrading to FreeBSD 11.2
After using some of the nice advices, I ended up with a usable system, even though some inconsistencies were obvious.
I did wget...
I did OS upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 . All went fine... almost as jails are showing wrong userland version now and I cannot upgrade software

when I try to reinstall software I am getting error:

Here are some differences in 11.2-BETA3 when upgrading from 11.2-BETA2 or before, by freebsd-update upgrade 11.2-BETA3.
The default for several virtual terminals in /etc/ttys is now onifexists. ttys must be examined before rebooting.

I'm upgrading my server from 10.3 to 11.1, following the instructions at Upgrading Using "FreeBSD Update" where everything went basically by the book right up to "rebuild all third-party applications (e.g., ports installed from the ports tree)."
There are a number of ports that will not build...
(I tried to search for "difference between 10 and 11" and the search excluded "10" "and" "11" for being too common, too short, etc - so the "search" results were totally irrelevant.)
I have a server running FreeBSD 10.3, I'm going to upgrade to either 10.4 or 11.1. I've looked at the release...
Hello FreeBSD forum!
I just installed FreeBSD for the first time and wanted to upgrade the whole system. (I'm planning on only using the pre-compiled packages, if that matters. And I have ran the
# /usr/sbin/pkg command)
But did I understand correctly that if I run
# freebsd-update fetch
This might be stupid and noob question, but I'm wondering that should I upgrade my FreeBSD from version 10.3 to version 11? Why I am wondering this:
My system works well now.
I have some software installed directly from source, because no package or port where avaible.
How painless upgrading...
