Snort no longer working after 2.3.3 Upgrade

I thought I would add a topic for this as well because I feel like it might apply to other packages that were once working in an earlier version pfsense.
As of upgrading to Pfsense version 2.3.3, I was unable to upgrade my snort package as well, kept get an error that the specified directory could not be found.
I uninstalled snort all together and just installed the newest snort version from scratch.
The package installs; however, it doesn't turn up under my Services tab and does not show up as a running service in my dashboard like it once did.
Package is installed but not running or accessible.

I saw this in the logs after the update:

Snort showed up in Installed packages with "newer version available". Tried to update:

Removed package. It threw some errors (attached). Rebooted.
Installed snort again without a problem. It now shows up in services and my settings are there too.
Have you tried turning it off and on again?
