Cannot uninstall package (SquidGuard)
I'm trying to uninstall squidgard, but it doesn't work.
First from the GUI, it just doens't seem to do anything.
Then from the shell, it just stalls with the following.
[2.4.5-RC][root@pfSense.localdomain]/root: pkg delete pfSense-pkg-squidGuard Checking integrity... done (0 conflicting) Deinstallation has been requested for the following 1 packages (of 0 packages in the universe): Installed packages to be REMOVED: pfSense-pkg-squidGuard-1.16.18_3 Number of packages to be removed: 1 Proceed with deinstalling packages? [y/N]: y [1/1] Deinstalling pfSense-pkg-squidGuard-1.16.18_3... Removing squidGuard components... Menu items... done. Services... done.
Been waiting for over an hour.
@yaminb I have never done it via the command line...always through the package manager and click on the trash can on the right, see image!
I've tried it through the web package manager. As mentioned, it doesn't do anything. I confirm the uninstall, then it just doesn't do anything.
So I tried the command line with the results above.
@yaminb After your command line input and output, did you reboot your pfSense box to see whether SquidGuard was still showing installed?
I see you are running a 2.4.5-RC snapshot. What hardware is this on?
When you run it from the command line, during the time it's stuck, what does pressing
^T(ctrl-t) print on the console?
@NollipfSense yes, I have tried rebooting several time. Squidguard still shows as installed.
I have a SG-3100. Just got it yesterday... and yes, I am trying out the 2.4.5-RC branch.
If you think it's best to go back to the stable branch... what's the best way. Normally downgrades are iffy. There's no way to reinstall without direct console access?

That looks like a problem one of us has replicated internally on their SG-3100 here as well. We're still investigating it, and don't have a resolution yet.
You may want to back down to 2.4.4-p3 for the time being on there. To get back to 2.4.4-p3 you would need to reinstall, you can get the recovery image from the support team, open an issue at https://go.netgate.com and they'll get you setup.
@yaminb I would suggest to try pfSense 2.5-dev...that's what I am running with those packages in the screen shot I provided above.
Just for record keeping. I flashed back to stock 2.4.4-p3 and no issues.
