Upgrade from 2.2.5 to 2.3.1_1 - packages won't download
I recently upgrade one of our APUs running pfSense 2.2.5 to version 2.3.1_1.
Before upgrading I removed the only package we had installed (check_mk).
Now I'm trying to install new packages but they fail to download.
I don't get any error when trying to install the package, pfsense just sits there are selecting "Proceed with this action? [y/N]: y"
If I ssh into the firewall and run top, I can see a pkg process taking up 100% cpu time.
PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE C TIME WCPU COMMAND 21866 root 1 103 0 19688K 11792K CPU1 1 1:42 100.00% pkg
They only way I can get this to end is to kill the pkg process.
I can use fetch to download the .txz file from https://pkg.pfsense.org/pfSense_v2_3_1_i386-pfSense_v2_3_1/All/ and install in manually.
Anyone have any idea how I can solve this?
