Updating and package install



  • I have been trying to figure this out lately and it only seems to happen on upgrades.  I have NMap, Squid, HAVP, Nut, and Widescreen installed and upon the re-synching/installing of packages on update, the packages just continue to try to install and doesn't do anything but loop the install.  It happens on my firewall (see stats below), and another P4 firewall (nothing special), but doesn't happen on the P3 (500MHz) system.

    Direct serial out:

    Whatever it is, it corrupts my installation and I have to wipe the drive and start all over from scratch with a fresh install.  Then recover my configuration, without the package information.  I can't just take out the installed packages from the config and reinstall them.  After the botched install, squid and havp don't work and any client not put on the pass through proxy, won't be able to access the web.

  • I have just decided to do away with upgrades all together since it causes too many issues and downtime.



  • Can you see at boot time if any  package fails To start before reinstalation loop?

    In some cases, package startup erros fail pfsense boot up script.



  • Everything from the direct serial output is shown (except all of the pages of incessant repeats of the package reinstalling).  That is all that is given on error for the package re-installation.



  • Have you tried To simulate this at virtual box or lab?

    Upgrade and install one package, then upgrade again and install another package…. And do it until loop happens.


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    As far as I've seen, nobody else is having this same issue. I upgrade many VMs/boxes almost every day, they all have packages, and none have problems.

    Are these all full installs? All done the same? The exact same packages on the one that works and the one that doesn't?



  • I figured out what it is.  Upon this update, now it is outputting the percentage that the package is downloaded/extracted.

    I still don't know why it is doing it the way it is, but it prior to me updating, I was running Aug 3rd's snap full install on an embedded board, and didn't have any of these issues.
    Other users are having issues, though they may not be related, but they seem to be from initial signs. http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,40144.0.html

    EDIT: Spoke to soon, it is just looping now.



  • Don't you have any backup? If so. Format this box and restore it.

    you can also make a copy of this backup and try to remove nmap from xml.

    if you can get access to hard disk that this pfsense is installed, you can place a config.xml whithout nmap.

    once you get a shell, see if there are any packages in conflict with pkg_info.

    you can also try to delete all packages that nmap needs.



  • It's not just nmap that is causing the issue.  It only seems to happen with nmap, squid, lightsquid, and havp installed.  It's re-creatable on two different systems, yet I can't get it to duplicate virtually.  I obtained an old computer this week so I want to debug it on that system and see exactly what is causing it.
    If I uninstall all of the packages before I update, I have no problems.  If I don't, then I run into issues upon upgrade.
    I have tried starting from scratch and restoring my config (without any of the packages in the config.xml) and I have no issues with that until I install all of my packages, and then do an update.  It's when pfsense does the package sync after update that it runs into issues.



  • Are you able to start from a fresh install. I think in this case it may be the only solution.



  • Hello

    I have had exactly the same issue while updaing to one of post RC3 snapshots. Whole upgrade proces take about 6 hours to complete and looping screens was quite annoing, but when it finished system working stable till now.
    Now, when we have the final release, I will install fresh system and will restore from backup file
    Regards
