Most likely cause is a corrupted download. Try clearing the cache and start fresh: rm -rf /var/db/freebsd-update/*


Yes, that should be possible.
Code:
rm -rf /var/db/freebsd-update/*
freebsd-update upgrade -r 10.3-RELEASE

Don't run freebsd-update fetch install in between. I'm thinking there's a collision with one of the files from 9.1 and a file from 10.3.

Code:
rm -rf /var/db/freebsd-update/*
freebsd-update upgrade -r 11.0-RELEASE
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 4 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update6.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE from update6.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Fetching 2 metadata files... done.
Inspecting system... done.

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

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:
world/doc world/games

Does this look reasonable (y/n)? y

Fetching metadata signature for 11.0-RELEASE from update6.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Fetching 1 metadata patches. done.
Applying metadata patches... done.
Fetching 1 metadata files... done.

The update metadata is correctly signed, but
failed an integrity check.
Cowardly refusing to proceed any further.


Where can I see more details of the upgrade process?

You can have a look at the code, freebsd-update(8) is a shell script.

Have you tried adding an intermediate step? You should be able to upgrade directly to 11.0 but it may be better to try to upgrade to 10.3 first.

Upgrade from 9.1 to 10.3 is performed correctly.
I'm interested in the ability to upgrade from 9.1 to 11.0 directly.
