  • Hi,

    See pfsense 2.3.3 Unable to check for updates or pfSense Repository "broken" (more exists).
    What is your DNS setup ? You kept the default "resolver" (always works, no matter what) or the more trickier one : "forwarder" ? What settings ?
    It might be even more simple (as seen in a thread) : the drive was booted using read only mode …. and that stops the show right away.
    Or drive damaged ...
    Or some system PHP system files didn't come over when installing ...

    Anyway, read the thread I showed - install Google and use it to search some more - and come back with your detailed findings. I promise you that in your next question you will find your answer.
