Segmentation fault using pfSense-upgrade



  • Hi, I noticed the update part of the web interface keeps saying Unable to check for updates and even after I hit save in the update options (A few people suggested that) it still failed saying the same thing.

    Another suggestion was turning off the ramdisk which my box was saying that it was over capacity by 110% and rebooting however that didn't work either.

    I found this thread https://forum.netgate.com/topic/122668/segmentation-fault-on-update but unlike them my pkg info does return something and I am even able to update using pkg update fine.

    I am assuming the pfSense-upgrade command does more than just update packages and probably updates the database etc right?

    I'm not the biggest expert on BSD so some help would be greatly appreciated!

    pfSense-upgrade

  • It seems that I didn't notice that it was failing to update due to snort being all kinds of weird. I just removed it with pkg remove snort and then attempted to update with pkg upgrade which was successful. After that I rebooted and tried out the pfSense-upgrade utility again which was successful.

    Hopefully this helps someone with the same issue.

    Which is why you really should list any and all packages you have installed in your OP...
