Failed to properly upgrade from 2.3.2

  • A few days ago we tried to upgrade from pfsense 2.3.2. On the dashboard it said 2.3.3_1 was available (I later found out that 2.3.4 had already been released, but it still showed this older version). So I went to upgrade from the web interface and it seemed to work alright and the system rebooted (I can't recall if I did it or it did automatically). Anyway, when it came back up, it appeared as though the upgrade only partially worked? There are two visible issues now (although so far the installation still seems to be functioning ok):

    1. In the web interface and shell, it still shows 2.3.2. No matter if I try to pkg update -f and pkg upgrade -f (which prompts me to reinstall a few packages) it does not fix the version numbers. I do not know if it's purely a cosmetic issue or if it's indicative of other critical components that also did not get upgraded. I should note that if I do uname -a in a shell, it does actually show pfsense 2.3.4, so I guess at least the kernel got upgraded…

    2. The dashboard always says "Unable to check for updates" although as previously noted, pkg update/upgrade seemingly work ok?

    One thing I did have to change post-upgrade (that I discovered while searching the forums here for my upgrade problem) was to uncheck the Allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN setting on the General Setup page in order to be able to get pkg to work correctly after the reboot.

    I should also note that in my Update Settings, I've never touched the Firmware Branch setting and it is currently on Stable (Default).

    At this point I do not know what else to do/try. I'd love to hear any suggestions/help anyone may have.

    First, go to the Update Settings and even if you do not change anything, press Save.

    Then from the shell check the output of these commands and post it here:

    pkg-static upgrade -f
    pkg-static version -vL=

    It should show the new versions there.

    After that, try updating from the shell using this command:

    pfSense-upgrade -d

    If that fails, post the output here as well.

    Looks like you might be missing a few core packages. So whatever the problem is, it happened a while ago and not now.

    That's it? There should be many, many (many) more entries. Over 150, closer to 170.

    Something must have destroyed the pkg database at some point. Did you manually change anything in there?

    You might be able to recover.

    pkg install -y pfSense pfSense-base pfSense-repo pfSense-kernel-pfSense pfSense-rc pfSense-repo pfSense-upgrade

    That may pull in everything else with its dependencies.

    Post "pkg info" output again after running that.

  • I haven't done any manual changes from the shell or anything like that, just normal usage via the web interface and just recently the upgrade (also from the web) that seemingly failed.

    I will probably wait to install these packages until the end of the day in case something should go awry.

  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Do you use the option to keep /var and /tmp in RAM? Or did you use it before and then turn it off?

    It's very unusual for the whole database to disappear like that but still have a few entries.

    And yeah, waiting for a good maintenance window would be ideal for making those changes. If it does work, you'll want to try the upgrade script again after. You might end up with 2.3.4 when the pkg command is done. Either way you'll want to reboot after making those changes.

  • Yes, we enabled Use memory file system for /tmp and /var during the initial installation a long while back because we have a full installation on an SSD. We have not changed that setting since installation.

  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    OK, there have been some problems with that in the past, so it's probably what happened on an earlier version. Reinstalling the packages like I mentioned above should hopefully get it back to normal.

  • After a reboot, I started seeing PHP warnings for every PHP module it seems in both the console and a "crash report" notification on the web GUI.

    The warnings look like this:

    [28-May-2017 16:17:52 America/New_York] PHP Warning:  Module 'bcmath' already loaded in Unknown on line 0

    Any way to get rid of these? I'm not sure if it's harmful to any services running or not, but it definitely does get in the way when using the console.

    … On the bright side though, the system now reports a 2.3.4-RELEASE version on the console and web and the check for updates no longer fails.

    EDIT: I found what the problem with PHP was. In /usr/local/etc/php there were already individual files for each extension and /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini had entries for each of those extensions, so it was loading them twice. I simply commented out each line in /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini and all is well again.

    Thanks jimp!

  • In my case I decided to go with a clean install 2.3.4 and backup restore config.

    To bad we can't use full-upgrade file still available for download as before.

    Likely could have been resolved by running: /etc/rc.php_ini_setup or on console using option '16) restart PHP-FPM'
