Squid-2.7.9_3-amd64 package will not install



  • I have pfSense installed on a VM. It's version 2.1.3.
    On trying to install squid, I get the following:

    _Beginning package installation for squid .

    I can download the package manually OK. I thought it may be something to do with my networking, so I tried to install another package as a test. The mtr-nox11 package installed OK.

    It looks to me as though the package has been updated, but the checksum in pbi_archivesum has not.

    I had the same problem with squid3:

    Is there another way to install squid?



  • I had the same issue, i386 version though. After two retries it worked for me.
