Unbound 1.4.22 fails to install on pfSense 2.0.3-RELEASE (i386) with 404 error

  • I'm running pfSense 2.0.3-RELEASE (i386) that has no third party packages installed. I am in need of recursive DNS services. My intention was to install the Unbound package on the server. The package seen in the list of available packages is:  Alpha 1.4.22 platform: 2.0

    When choosing to install the Unbound package, the following happens in the package manager:

    Installation of Unbound FAILED!

    When attempting to curl or browse to the package at https://files.pfsense.org/packages/8/All/unbound-1.4.22.tbz or http://ftp2.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-8.1-release/All/unbound-1.4.22.tbz I receive page not found errors. I can't even find the 1.4.22 package anywhere in the hierarchy at http://ftp2.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/ and the closest thing I can find on pfsenes.org's file server is https://files.pfsense.org/packages/8/All/unbound-1.4.22-i386.pbi

    Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    EDIT: Looks very similar to this issue: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,73356.msg400535.html

  • I updated from pfSense 2.0.3 to pfSense 2.1.2 yesterday and attempted to install Unbound. It worked. Go figure.

  • Hrmm yeah only unbound-1.4.21_1.tbz is available. 1.4.22 for 2.0.X was not built for some reason automatically.
    You on 2.1.3 now so I am not going to worry too much :)
