frozen package update
I've just updated Netgate SG-3100 from 2.4.4-p3 to 2.4.5-p1 through web GUI. I had a "Success" message followed by a reboot. The firewall is working and accessible.
The problem is when I try updating 2 outdated packages (bandwidthd and openvpn-client-export) in /pkg_mgr_install.php I get:
Please wait while the update system initializes
30 mins later there is no progress and when I check package version in a new tab the old versions are still reported.
What shall I do about it at this stage (ideally without rebooting the device)?
Also - is this warning related and something to worry about?

old versions are still reported.
... and still shown as "running" ?
That that's a problem.
stop it - stop the service.
Then do a reboot.
"openvpn-client-export" isn't a process or daemon. Just a bunch of GUI scripts and support files.
Manually stopping bandwidthd service made no difference.
An hour later /pkg_mgr_install.php is still stuck on "Please wait while the update system initializes".
Would it be reasonable to try updating both bandwidthd and openvpn-client-export from the shell?
I would rather avoid having to stop openvpn service or rebooting the entire device if possible.
@adamw I don't have a link for you but I seem to recall several posts about package installation/updates getting stuck after upgrading to 2.4.5. You might look back through posts from this spring/summer. I seem to recall discussion of killing a process? I just never ran into it myself.

Check if Unbound is running. We have to restart Unbound after upgrading pfblockerNG.
Disabling package before upgrading might be good. I also disable Auto Config Backup to prevent timeout if DNS services goes down.
A reboot alone fixed it. Both outdated packages now report the latest versions. I've checked in web GUI and from the shell.
Thanks and happy 2021!
