2.4.1-Dev (amd64) OCT 4 Build - no errors, but no updates.



  • I seem to have the "Update can't find newer version" bug again.

  • Found this advice if the system was having an issue with the update branch

    pkg update -f
    pkg unlock pfSense-kernel-pfSense
    pkg upgrade -fy
    pkg lock pfSense-kernel-pfSense
    Reboot from the console menu or using /etc/rc.reboot

    as expected, It took me to the latest 2.4 RC (10-09-1758)

    but unfortunately, It still does not see any updates on either Stable or Dev Snapshots firmware branch.


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    The 2.4.1 snapshot builds are stopped at the moment to free up resources as we finalize 2.4-RELEASE. They'll start again later this week.



  • Perfect!
    I had assumed that since I saw newer versions that they should show up via the update feature, but it makes sense that the functionality has been suspended till release.

    Thanks for the explanation.
