PKG tool show no output unable to update


  • I have followed the troubleshooting guide for updates, the funny thing is I have not done any updates since 2.4.4_3 came out and my update logs are empty specifically for install information like they were cleared. The last possible thing I will try is a factory reset, however this is a remote site and I am uneasy about if this will work given the pkg command flat out does not output anything.

    The official guide I followed is here https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/install/index.html

    My output from the CLI

  • @tleadley Holy crap, somehow pkg, pkg-static and pkg2ng in /usr/local/sbin all got overwritten and showed zero bytes. I was just lucky enough to have access to one of my other SG3100's and copied the files over. I ran the repair process once again and we are good to go, no factory reset required.
