Something went wrong when trying to update the fstab entry. Aborting upgrade



  • system: Alix box with latest firmware

    (slice ad0s1 is currently running)
    1.2.3-RC3
    built on Mon Oct 5 23:56:45 UTC 2009
    FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p4 i386

    I tried to update to this release:
    pfSense-1.2.3-RC3-512mb-nanobsd-upgrade.img.gz - 2009-Nov-05 16:02:33 36.6M

    (systemlog)
    Nov  5 18:33:00 pfsense php: : New alert found: Something went wrong when trying to update the fstab entry.  Aborting upgrade.

    (updatelog)
    Misc log:

    cp: /tmp/pfsense1/etc/fstab: No such file or directory
    sed: /tmp/pfsense1/etc/fstab: No such file or directory
    umount: /tmp/pfsense1: not a file system root directory

    fdisk/bsdlabel log:

    Is there a solution besides unscrewing my alix and manually flashing my CF?

    best regards,

  • ???

    Did anyone ever reply. Am having same here…
    2Gig CF card here...



  • nope, no feedback so far  :'(

    as the copy process before this error seems to be ok, a manual guide for the last few steps in the shell would help me out.

  • October is pretty old, unfortunately.  NanoBSD was a moving target up until a brief bit ago.

    In these cases you will have to reflash.
