    Thanks  Pringles.



  • lol fixed it i Turn off IPV6 all working now



  • Thanks.  System -> Advanced -> Networking, unchecked IPv6, package installer now working.



  • This puzzled me for awhile. Installing any package or changing the update branch made the web interface stop responding, as well as ssh. In my case, routing continues as normal while the router is otherwise inaccessible.

    System -> Advanced -> Networking -> Allow IPv6

    Uncheck to block all IPv6 traffic, all symptoms disappear. It doesn't exist in the bug tracker as far as I can tell.



  • The solution, disabling IPv6, actually asks for a better solution : make IPv6 work.

    I never had to disable IPv6 on my pfSense, even back in time when I had not any IPv6 support from my ISP. This ISP didn't t offer any IPv6 support back then, and they still don't do so today.
    Updating, or package management on pfSense worked well.

    I decided to add IPv6 support using he.net.
    No change, everything still works.
    he.net fails ? Or I disable this IPv6-Only-WAN connection ? Still ok, all is well.



  • Agreed. Having to disable functionality to make software stable is not a permanent solution. I really hope they fix ipv6 soon.
