Cannot update pfSense-core repo catalogue
As of late I've been seeing no updates available, despite running 2.4.4-RELEASE-p2. Looking into this, I see no packages listed under Package Manager -> Available Packages.
Following some forum posts here and the docs, it seems I need to force update the repo data - however that is hanging indefinitely on 'Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue'
/usr/local/sbin/pkg-static -d update -f DBG(1)> pkg initialized Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue... DBG(1)> PkgRepo: verifying update for pfSense-core DBG(1)> PkgRepo: need forced update of pfSense-core DBG(1)> Pkgrepo, begin update of '/root/var/db/pkg/repo-pfSense-core.sqlite' DBG(1)> Fetch: fetching from: https://files00.netgate.com/pfSense_v2_4_5_amd64-core/meta.conf with opts "i" ^C
It will just hang forever at
Fetch, and so does trying
curlmanually from the router, however I can access and download
meta.confwith no issues via a browser or curl from any other host. Trying to look into that, I find I am unable to even ping
netgate.comfrom the router, but can successfully ping from any other host on the network.
ping netgate.com PING netgate.com (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes ping: sendto: No buffer space available ping: sendto: No buffer space available
I'm not sure where to look next at this point.
Bad route maybe?
Can pfSense itself access other sites directly? It's not showing a DNS error there.
