Good day,

I'm trying to upgrade from FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p3 GENERIC to 12.1.

# uname -a
Code:
FreeBSD  12.0-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p3 GENERIC  amd64

Remove any cached info first:
rm -rf /var/db/freebsd-update/*.

# freebsd-update fetch
Code:
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 12.0-RELEASE from update2.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Inspecting system... done.
Preparing to download files... done.
This then hangs indefinitely with '(end)'



When I upgrade with
# freebsd-update -r 12.1-release upgrade

I'm getting the following error:
Code:
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 12.0-RELEASE from update4.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Inspecting system... done.

The following components of FreeBSD seem to be installed:
kernel/generic world/base world/doc world/lib32

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:

kernel/generic-dbg world/base-dbg world/lib32-dbg

Does this look reasonable (y/n)?
clicking Y results in this:

Code:

Fetching metadata signature for 12.1-release from update4.freebsd.org... failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 12.1-release from update2.freebsd.org... failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 12.1-release from update1.freebsd.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.
Any help will be appreciated.

It doesn't "hang indefinitely". It's waiting for you to quit less(1) (which is what's showing the '(end)').
Sure SirDice. I figured out that I need to press q (just general feedback to the Project: this is not self explantory to new FreeBSD users, maybe enter, but not q).

However, this hasn't solved the lib32-dbg problem. Searching through the forums, it seems to come up with WINE related ports and problems, but I not got WINE installed.

but that's not solving lib32-dbg problem
There is no lib32-dbg problem. You don't have it installed and freebsd-update(8) is simply confirming that.

This however is a problem:
Code:
Fetching metadata signature for 12.1-release from update1.freebsd.org... failed.
But that has nothing to do with lib32-dbg. I suspect the error may be caused by everyone trying to upgrade today and the mirrors are simply a bit overloaded at the moment.

Hi everybody

Sorry for writing to a solved thread. I dont't know how you solved it but the installation manual says:

freebsd-update upgrade -r 12.1-RELEASE

Please notice upper case letters in RELEASE.

wrong:
/usr/sbin/freebsd-update upgrade -r 12.1-release

right:
/usr/sbin/freebsd-update upgrade -r 12.1-RELEASE


PS: It's the same with a manual release download:

wrong:
Code:
https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/releases/amd64/amd64/12.1-release/base.txz
right:
Code:
https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/releases/amd64/amd64/12.1-RELEASE/base.txz
