https://pkg.pfsense.org/ is down and cannot continue update pfsense to newest version.
Stucked at https://pkg.pfsense.org/pfSense_v2_3_4_amd64-pfSense_v2_3_4/All/strongswan-5.5.1_1.txz
"pkg.pfsense.org’s server DNS address could not be found."

well, I tried to ping pkg.pfsense.org from a pc not in pfsense lan and still it cant resolve hostname to ip.
so it has a dns problem. even right now in my home i cant access https://pkg.pfsense.org/
it clearly does not have a dns problem… Seems you have a lack of understanding what record is used..

This is normal :
[2.3.4-RELEASE][email@example.com]/root: ping pkg.pfsense.org ping: cannot resolve pkg.pfsense.org: No address associated with name
"pkg.pfsense.org" has no A record, neither AAAA.
'ping' won't work.
"pkg.pfsense.org" has NO web server listing on port 80 - neither 443 (https).
All is well, actually. "Internet'" is much more as mail transferring and web pages.
This works :
[2.3.4-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root: pkg upgrade Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue... pfSense-core repository is up to date. Updating pfSense repository catalogue...

All repositories are up to date. Checking for upgrades (101 candidates): 100% Processing candidates (101 candidates): 100% Checking integrity... done (0 conflicting) Your packages are up to date.
regardless, upgrading fails because it cant access pkg.pfsense.org while i have no problem on this on previous upgrading.
and can you query like the above?
nevermind the thread topic. it was a miracle today when I tried to update, it updated. I have don't nothing else to try to fix the problem but it just worked today and i have finished updating.
I dont know what, who fixed it but sure not in my side.
