  • The minimum pfSense version required for Squid is now 2.0.n
    I guess that the 1.2.3 package installer code doesn't have the code to check that, so it let you install it.
    The code in squid.inc is checking for version "2.0" to use pkg install dir names, it assumes that if you are not on 2.0.n that you are on a later version e.g. 2.1-BETA0 which uses pbi installer. So you are getting those messages about it trying to find dirs with "pbi" in the name.
    I would advise installing pfSense 2.0.1 and then install packages…
