Snort Install Failed - 2.3.2-RELEASE (amd64)



  • Hello all…

    I have stopped using two different brands of enterprise network equipment and opted to begin using pfSense instead.  What a great decision!

    I have installed the newest version of pfSense which at the time of this post is 2.3.2-RELEASE (amd64).  I was attempting to install snort from the System | Package Manager menu and I received the following error message:

    Installing pfSense-pkg-snort...
    Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue...
    pfSense-core repository is up-to-date.
    Updating pfSense repository catalogue...
    pfSense repository is up-to-date.
    All repositories are up-to-date.
    New version of pkg detected; it needs to be installed first.
    The following 1 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

    Installed packages to be UPGRADED:
    pkg: 1.8.7 -> 1.8.7_1 [pfSense]

    Number of packages to be upgraded: 1

    2 MiB to be downloaded.
    pkg: https://pkg.pfsense.org/pfSense_v2_3_2_amd64-pfSense_v2_3_2/All/pkg-1.8.7_1.txz: Not Found
    Failed

    Anyone have any ideas how I can resolve this issue and install snort?  Any suggestions would be helpful.



  • I too have the same error when trying to install squid on a fresh install of pfsense 2.3.2. Did you find fix?
