Upgrade problem

  • Hi all,
    I am trying to upgrade my 1.2 pfsense with 1.2.1 but keep getting this error.

    The digital signature on this image is invalid.
    This means that the image you uploaded is not an official/supported image and may lead to unexpected behavior or security compromises. Only install images that come from sources that you trust, and make sure that the image has not been tampered with.

    Do you want to install this image anyway (on your own risk)?

    What can i do other than a fresh install?

    Thanks in advance


  • The original signature got lost. Just install it anyway. If the message really scares you, install the pubkey package.

  • Seriously?!?! lost?

    so much for security.. that is, if we can trust this poster wasnt hacked as well...

  • Yeah, I've been hacked. I'm feeding you bogus information for my own amusement. You've been hacked too, you just haven't realized it. Again, If you are scared easily, go to packages and install the pubkey. But, I could have hacked the pubkey package! Ha Ha Ha!

  • I also have had an upgrade problem going from 1.2.1 to 1.2.2.  I have the full install of pfsense on an 80gb hard drive, so space isnt an issue.  I did the autoupdate and it found the newer version and downloaded it.  However, as soon as the download finished it just gave an error that it couldnt do the update.

    So I manually download the image from the updates directory (latest.tgz) and installed it manually.  However, that failed as well of course because the manual update process has to have the file named pfsense*.tgz.

    Renamed the latest.tgz to pfsense_latest.tgz and it worked perfect.

    Does the autoupdate process require the file to be named pfsense_* before it will run like the manual process does?
