TFTP didn't install properly, now I can't delete package nor reinstall

  • I recently needed to reinstall my pfsense from scratch after an SSD-crash.
    Loaded a backup of my xml-file and the system was running again.

    I did need to install the package siproxd to get my telephony working.
    A bit later I also wanted to install the TFTP-server that I sometimes need to upgrade firmware….

    This package didn't install properly somehow.
    I thought to fix it by removing the package and then reinstall it....
    "reinstall this package didn't work either"

    I'm always getting this dialogue, which seem to me unfinished....:

    Removing package...
    Removing TFTP components...
    Tabs items... done.
    Menu items... done.
    Services... done.
    Loading package instructions...
    Deinstall commands... 

    Can I do something from the console to fix this?

  • I'm still having this issue?
    Could someone please help?

    You can get a config backup, edit out the package info, then restore it.

  • OK, thanks….

    But that means a restart of the router....
    I need to wait at least a week before I can afford that... I will get killed if the Internet goes down another time....

    You can use the "viconfig" command to edit the config live without rebooting. Just be careful.

  • Thanks….

    I'm very familiar with vi, so I thought that was even a safer way to go.....
    I deleted the lines and then installed the package, just fine...

    thank you very much
