Hello!
Dear members inform me please
How can I update FreeBSD 11.0-STABLE #0 r310359 ?
When I ran freebsd-update fetch
I've got messages:
Code:
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update6.freebsd.org... failed.
Fetching public key from update5.freebsd.org... failed.
Fetching public key from update4.freebsd.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.
Thanks for the help.

To update *--STABLE or *--CURRENT, you need to update sources and rebuild world and kernel,
check this simple tutorial — http://www.wonkity.com/~wblock/docs/html/buildworld.html
To update sources, use svnlite, it is preinstalled:
# svnlite checkout https://svn.FreeBSD.org/base/stable/11 /usr/src

After "svnlite checkout" will be executed, it is possible to update sources just with
# svnlite update /usr/src

Hello! Thank you very much!
I've updated FreeBSD 11.0-STABLE.
But I need upgrade from FreeBSD 11.0 - STABLE to FreeBSD 11.1 -STABLE.
How can I upgrade FreeBSD to 11.1 - STABLE?
#snvlite upgrade doesn't upgrade from FreeBSD 11.0-STABLE to 11.1-STABLE.

You are on -STABLE. The -STABLE branch is a moving release. So it'll eventually become 11.2-PRERELEASE and after 11.2-RELEASE it will become 11.2-STABLE.

It seems to me, that the FreeBSD version you are looking for is releng/11.1.

Not sure if it's intended to do so, but I switched from 11-STABLE to 11.1-RELEASE and then build world and kernel from /releng/11.1 source.

# svnlite switch https://svn.freebsd.org/base/releng/11.1 /usr/src/

...than build world and kernel.

When you are done building from source, you should be able to use use freebsd-update to update to future releases.
