SG-2400 crashed manual update has more issues
detox last edited by
My Netgate SG2400 crashed during upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4
Found a 'work around' command of:
pkg static update -f
pkg static upgrade -f via ssh
This upgraded to 2.4.2-RELEASE-p1
But now I cannot install any packages with error of " WARNING: Current pkg repository has a new OS major version. pfSense should be upgraded before doing any other operation Failed"
Can anyone help?
UPDATE: After talking with Mr Google again, I found a reference to a previous post on this forum ( https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=141776.msg773610#msg773610 )
It suggested using this command from terminal : pfSense-upgrade -d
I did so, rebooted and now I can install packages
I shall not ask fro the technical reasons on why it failed, or how my manual attempt to fix a crashed appliance possibly contributed.
However, if someone would be willing to provide speculation on the why's, I would be quite appreciative
