System/Package Manager/Available Packages Screen is broken


  • Banned

    Hello all,

    On my pfSense the page System/Package Manager/Available Packages Screen is broken.

    As you can see below.

    I cannot search for packages or see the available packages for installation anymore.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Can you solve this case? I'm having a problem.

    @vagner Apparently it was a connection issue between Netgate servers and my PfSense box. Probably something to do with my ISP. After I began using a VPN service it started working again.
    I suggest you try that and see if it works for you.



  • Hi,

    "No packages listed" is mostly a DNS error. Many forum
    This might go unnoticed, often because LAN client are set up not don't use pfSene as a DNS resolver (the 8.8.8.8 ea fan club) but pfSense itself need to have a working DNS also, to resolve URL that will point to, for instance, the package server or the update server - the ntp time server, etc.

    So, go back to the default, use the unbound Resolver suing default settings and packages will show up again.
    Any other good DNS setup will do fine also.

    Netgate's server won't block requests from "your pfSense" - maybe your IP, if you hammer it enough, but I can't tell.
    Again, I presume your pfSense never made a request against Netgate's servers because you broke things on your side.

    That's new.
    An ISP that doesn't transmit basic TCP traffic. That's bad indeed.
    But I doubt that could be the issue.



  • Hi...
    I would like to thank everyone for their help.
    I do not know what the problem was, the other day it was working normal, without any changes
