Access repo file(/var/db/pkg/repo-pfSense.sqlite) failed: No such file or direct
I know there are many threads on the subject but none seem to fix my problem.

After trying a few solutions, I decided to do a clean install and then restore my config. Sadly, the problem persists. I am able to query the server from the firewall itself and from a host so I’d like to think my DNS is OK.

The file does not exist:

I’m guessing that’s where the problem lies but it still is missing after a clean install so now what?
Any advice would be welcome.
I am still having the same problem so I installed pfsense in a VM to check the differences.
The VM works fine and can see “available packages”. After making sure my DNS resolver was setup identically, I still couldn’t see any packages listed.
After looking at my routing table however, I came accross something that to my noob mind makes no sense.
I have a WAN (em0), a LAN (em1), a WIFI (em2) and a VPN connection (ovpnc5) through which I try and have all my traffic go through.
Destination Gateway Flags Netif Expire default 10.4.54.36 UGS lo0 10.4.0.0/16 10.4.0.1 UGS ovpnc5 10.4.0.1 link#10 UH ovpnc5 10.4.54.36 link#10 UHS lo0 10.20.30.40 link#2 UHS lo0 10.20.30.40/32 link#2 U em1 18.104.22.168 link#9 UHS lo0 127.0.0.1 link#6 UH lo0 192.168.1.0/24 link#2 U em1 192.168.1.1 link#2 UHS lo0 192.168.2.0/24 link#3 U em2 192.168.2.1 link#3 UHS lo0 22.214.171.124 link#9 UH pppoe0
I don’t understand why the default gateway tries to go through the lo0 interface and not the ovpnc5 interface. I still get a DNS response when querying from the firewall or clients on the LAN.
What am I doing wrong? I’m going over each setting comparing a vanilla installation and what I currently have but it will take some time and I am puzzeled by the routing table.
As always, any advice is welcome!
So I keep searching for a solution and can’t seem to get anyone interested in my issue.
The Routing issue was fixed by a reboot.
From the router, I can do DNS queries so I’m going to rule out DNS as being a problem.
[2.4.3-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root: dig google.com +short 126.96.36.199
It seems however, that I am unable to connect to a remote site from the firewall.
[2.4.3-RELEASE][email@example.com]/root: curl -vvv https://google.com * Rebuilt URL to: https://google.com/ * Trying 188.8.131.52... * TCP_NODELAY set * Immediate connect fail for 184.108.40.206: Network is unreachable * Closing connection 0 curl: (7) Couldn't connect to server
I’ve tried a bunch of permissive rules in my ‘LAN rules’ but I just can’t seem to get it to work.
Can anyone offer some advice?

I guess rebooting ones more won’t help you.
What will help is ditching your setup.
A clean pfSense does :

so consider your system broke. Clean it up and you’ll be fine
Thanks for the reply Gertjan,
I was doing my best not to have any down time. My wife hates it when I tinker and block access to instagram!
Thanks for your advice.
