Failed upgrade 2.3.2 ALIX 2C2



  • Hi guys - I recently attempted to perform an upgrade to 2.3.2 over SSH, choosing option 13.  The upgrade failed and after a reboot the dashboard widgets are missing and the crash report is as follows:-

    10.3-RELEASE
    FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE #5 05adf0a(RELENG_2_3_0): Mon Apr 11 19:05:10 CDT 2016    root@ce23-i386-builder:/builder/pfsense-230/tmp/obj/builder/pfsense-230/tmp/FreeBSD-src/sys/pfSense_wrap

    Crash report details:

    PHP Errors:
    [29-Jul-2016 10:24:15 Europe/London] PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function save_widget_settings() in /usr/local/www/index.php on line 166
    [29-Jul-2016 10:24:15 Europe/London] PHP Stack trace:
    [29-Jul-2016 10:24:15 Europe/London] PHP  1. {main}() /usr/local/www/index.php:0

    I've attempted to restore back to a previous snapshot, however the issue remains.

    Many thanks



  • Any ideas guys?



  • Also having problems:

    Got this:

    Notices

    General

    .    Package Cron does not exist in current pfSense version and it has been
      removed. @ 2016-08-01 13:56:29
    .    Package snort does not exist in current pfSense version and it has been
      removed. @ 2016-08-01 13:56:37
    .    Package System_Patches does not exist in current pfSense version and it has been
      removed. @ 2076-08-07 73:56:59

    Snort also missing in services.
    Package manager: Installed and Available Packages both error with 'Unable to retrieve'.



  • The remedy:

    Opened 192.168.1.1:22 in terminal window (Putty).
    Choose # 15 - Restore recent configuration
    Choose # 1 - List backups
    Choose backup number with date/time just before the 2.3.2 install
    Reboot server/controler

    Back in business!



  • Spoke too soon on this.  Still no installed or available package download list.  There is a snort menu item, but it goes to a 404 page.



  • Someone posted might point to a failing hard drive / CF.  Might want to run SMART to see what results you get off of it.



  • I've now moved across to ESXi 6 instead - figured I might as well virtualise pfSense at some point due to some packages that don't run particularly well on the ALIX board.

    My trusty ALIX 2C2 has served me well over the last few years, but the last few updates just seemed to be a pain to get installed.



  • Having same problem.

    Anyone have a fix? or where to look for the fix?


  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    Looks like a failed upgrade for some reason in the OP as the info posted indicates the kernel is still RELENG_2_3_0, not RELENG_2_3_2.

    See if there is anything interesting in /cf/conf/upgrade_log.txt
