Whenever I close Octopkg I cannot open it again without going to the system monitor and ending the octopkg processes first. Any way to fix this?

Try starting it from a terminal window, it may spit out a bunch of warnings and/or errors that might be useful to figure out what is going wrong.

There aren't any warnings or errors in the terminal when I type bsd@bsd-ghostbsd-pc /u/l/bin> octopkg. It doesn't do anything when the octopkg processes are still running.

Make sure there isn't anything running, then start it from the command line. I'm wondering if it spits out any of those warnings or errors when you try to close it.

Did you setup doas for it? It needs setup. Some escalation of privileges are needed.

… now I installed FreeBSD …

Did you somehow install FreeBSD over an installation of GhostBSD, reusing some files within the partition?

If so: which version of GhostBSD preceded the overwrite?

Incidentally, force (-f) by default is debatably not ideal. This example was harmless:

– other removals, without confirmation, might be troublesome. FreeBSD bug 259963 – ports-mgmt/octopkg consider not using -f -y (force) by default.

… VirtualBox.

This does ring a bell however:
<https://github.com/aarnt/octopkg/commit/88a4366a601bc3fd736ef1292c41ef95ef172b0a> (2020-04-01) was:

- Make octopkg-doas work with sudo when doas is not found.

Some escalation of privileges are needed.

Without doas, an authentication dialogue:
