Hi all,

I'm getting the following error on my FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE-p2:

Code:
# pkg update

This is my /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf:

Code:
FreeBSD: { enabled: no }
FreeBSD_latest: {
   url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/latest",
   mirror_type: "srv",
   signature_type: "fingerprints",
   fingerprints: "/usr/share/keys/pkg",
   enabled: yes
}

I would add that I've had the same setup for quite some time and it only recently broke.

Removing the pkg+http scheme results in a deprecation warning.

Even a bare-minimum .conf like so:
Code:
FreeBSD_latest: {
   url: "http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/latest",
}

Results in:
Code:
# pkg update

At any rate, I don't think the problem is with the mirror or the connection, but rather with my local database.

Try this first: pkg-static install -f pkg. Then follow up with pkg update -f.

Looks like there is something wrong with the DB.
I remember reading that automatic backups of the DB are being performed, perhaps it's worth investigating that?

I don't think your local registration database is at fault, it only complains about the meta data and SQL from the locally cached remote repositories. Try removing /var/db/pkg/FreeBSD.meta, /var/db/pkg/FreeBSD_latest.meta, /var/db/pkg/repo-FreeBSD.sqlite and /var/db/pkg/repo-FreeBSD_latest.sqlite. Then running pkg update again.

Do NOT remove /var/db/pkg/local.sqlite (it contains the registrations for your currently installed packages). In case you still want to checkout the backups, they're in /var/backups/.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Unfortunately it sill gives the same "wrong version 2" error as before:
Code:
# rm /var/db/pkg/FreeBSD.meta
# rm /var/db/pkg/FreeBSD_latest.meta
# rm /var/db/pkg/repo-FreeBSD.sqlite
# rm /var/db/pkg/
local.sqlite  vuln.xml
# pkg update

Try updating ports-mgmt/pkg from the ports tree using ports-mgmt/portmaster.
If you haven't fetched the ports tree yet, just do the following:

Code:
# portsnap fetch
# portsnap extract

Once the process is over, assuming you have ports-mgmt/portmaster installed already, run:
Code:
# portmaster pkg

At the end, you should see pkg version 1.13.2 installed (at the time of writing this post)

After I did the above, I got this:
Code:
# pkg upgrade -F

I have the same problem. The two portsnap commands worked, but I'm blocked on the "portmaster pkg" step as it is not installed, and "pkg install portmaster" also produces a "wrong version 2" error. Any ideas?

If you are using ports (your mention of portsnap...), what happens if you try to build pkg from ports manually?
like this:
Code:
cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg
make install clean
cd

Thanks for your replies. I can see how that likely would have worked.

Yesterday I continued playing with it and decided to upgrade since I was running an unsupported release (11.0). At some point in the process of moving to 12.1 I wound up with a new enough version of pkg that I was able to overcome the issue using the technique above. And now my server is up to date. :)

The upgrade went smoothly with no disruption to my local configurations - kudos to the FreeBSD team!

I've been running into this with 12.0-RELEASE to 12.1-RELEASE and freebsd-update

After a lot of frustration, I've had some success with (using the repo of your architecture and quarterly/latest choice)

Code:
fetch https://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:12:amd64/latest/All/pkg-1.14.2.txz
sudo pkg add -f pkg-1.14.2.txz

pkg-add(8) suggests that

Code:
sudo pkg add -f https://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:12:amd64/latest/All/pkg-1.14.2.txz
would work as a one-liner, though I have not now tried it successfully.

The first option didn't work for me. I see the 2nd one for the first time now, I have no clue if it works or not, the problem was solved on my side.

You can learn a lot from the man pages ;)

Code:
     bootstrap
             This is for compatibility with the pkg(7) bootstrapper.  If pkg
             is already installed, nothing is done.

             If invoked with the -f flag an attempt will be made to reinstall
             pkg from remote repository.
See pkg(8) and pkg(7).

Same thing for me 12.0 to 12.1 and removing and then bootstrapping worked! Thanks!

This seems to be a chronic problem with 12.0 to 12.1 upgrades. I had 3 systems so far exhibit the same problem. The solution is

Code:
pkg bootstrap -f
pkg update -f

Then you can proceed with pkg upgrade -fy as requested by freebsd-update()
(I figured I might as well add this for myself and others since this post is the first/second result on search engines)
