Hello,

After having rebooted I ran the final freebsd-update install step and got this:

Code:
# 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
install: ///var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/rc.d/os-release: No such file or directory
install: ///var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/rc.d/sysvipc: No such file or directory
done.

I do not use CURRENT:
Code:
# uname -a
FreeBSD myserverurl.com 12.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-p1 GENERIC  amd64

So I don't know why it is looking for a /var/db/etcupdate/current/ directory (which is missing).

Can I simply safely ignore these error messages?

/var/db/etcupdate/current refers here to the current system not to a CURRENT release like 13.0-CURRENT. For info see etcupdate(8).

There should be one. Is there a /var/db/etcupdate/log file?

It should be safe to ignore them, 12.1-RELEASE doesn't have those missing command scripts.
Have you checked if /etc/rc.d/linux, /etc/rc.d/os-release, /etc/rc.d/sysvipc are present in the current system?
