This has been making me crazy for the last couple of weeks. I have a server that seems slow to do port upgrades however does get them done (download time seems slow), however when I try to do a OS update via freebsd-update(8) I get the following:
Code:
-> freebsd-update --debug upgrade -r 12.0-RELEASE
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 11.2-RELEASE from update1.freebsd.org...

done.

phttpget: Connection failure
gunzip: (stdin): unexpected end of file
metadata is corrupt.


I have even gone so far as to set HTTP_TIMEOUT to 7200 in my environment yet I am still running into this issue.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Is this server behind a NAT? Can you try to fetch some file using wget to check if there's no network related issue / interruption.

I did some more research and got it working. We are sitting behind a PFSense Firewall on a Proxmox server and seems that the hardware checksum offloading on the firewall was giving us grief. I am happily updating to 12.1 now.
