freebsd-update inconsistency


A week ago I attempted to update my amd64 system using freebsd-update. The freebsd-update fetch command worked (I think) but freebsd-update install failed because of lack of space on the root file system. I subsequently installed another hard-drive and freed up space on the root filesystem.

When I now run sudo freebsd-update fetch I see
No updates needed to update system to 10.2-RELEASE-p20.
but sudo freebsd-update install
tells me to
Run '/usr/sbin/freebsd-update fetch' first.

uname tells me I'm on 10.2-RELEASE-p18 but freebsd-version says I'm on 10.2-RELEASE-p20.

I cleaned out /var/db/freebsd-update/files and re-ran freebsd-update(), but to no avail.

I appreciate any help in getting this sorted out.

The last two updates didn't involve the kernel so that's still at p18 (see freebsd-version -uk).
