Forced upgrade? 2.3 pkg repository disabled?
I am on 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 , and can not seem to install any packages. I get the message.
WARNING: Current pkg repository has a new OS major version.
pfSense should be upgraded before doing any other
2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 was released less then 90 days ago. In a corp environment making infrastructure changes like upgrading firewall is an involved process. As 2.4 was only released 5 days ago, I am CERTAINLY not installing on production machines. Minimum I'd wait 2-3 weeks to see if any people experienced any issues, install in test environment, most likely wait till at least a point version was released before considered stable/safe.
Can you please re-enable the 2.3 package repository.
Update, was able to fix. For anyone else experiencing issue.
System->Update Settings-> Branch
Change from 'stable' to 'Security/Errata only (2.3.x)'
Thank you. That helped me fix the issue.
By the way what happened to me was that i already had the firewall working.
I tried to restore a config and the packages couldnt get installed
i Changed the update settings to 'Security/Errata only (2.3.x)
than i had to force the packages to be installed from shell
pkg-static install -f pkg
after that everything got back to normal
@meritan-hima Thanks for the feedback. Same issue happend to me, and your reply helped me a lot. Package installation only worked after the command "pkg-static install -f pkg" from the shell.
