Unable to upgrade pfsense and install packages SG-1100

  • Hello

    I have some issues with my netgate sg-1100. It indicates that there are is no upgrade of pfSense available and no packages to be downloaded.

    This is the version of pfSense that I am running now:

    2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (arm64)
    built on Thu May 16 06:01:19 EDT 2019
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p10

    Can someone help me?

    Kind regards,

  • Ensure you have System/Update, "branch" set to the latest stable 2.4 version, and not Previous. Or, try setting it to Previous and then back to Latest.

  • Also, ensure that your pfSense can do DNS resolving for itself.
    Connect to the console (SSH), and do a

    ping somewhere.tld

    somewhere.tld should be resolved to an IP before it starts counting packets.


    dig host www.google.com +short

    You should see a single line with an IP address.

    If these test do not give back a result, then testing for the presence for updates, pfSense or packages, won't work neither. NTP won't work neither. Etc.

    edit : Warning : when you found and corrected the issue, and you have pfSense packages installed, will find upgrades.
    Do not upgrade them.
    Update pfSense first to the latest available version, that is 2.4.5-p1 right now.
    Only then upgrade packages.
    I advise you to 'stop' packages that have services running first.
    Then upgrade pfSense.
    Upgrade the packages.
    And fire them up, one by one, after checking possible changes features, settings etc.
