  • Same problem here.

    I just upgraded to 2.1.5 and the "available package" list is empty with the following error message.

    "Unable to communicate with https://packages.pfsense.org. Please verify DNS and interface configuration, and that pfSense has functional Internet connectivity."

    DNS and Internet connectivity works from "Diagnostic" and the cmd-line.



  • Solved the problem for me.

    Seems like packages.pfsense.org is not reachable over IPv6.

    host packages.pfsense.org
    packages.pfsense.org has address 208.123.73.88
    packages.pfsense.org has IPv6 address 2610:160:11:11::88

    I can only ping the IPv4 address. However, my IPv6 connectivity seems to work for everything else.

    I added the following entry to /etc/hosts to force an IPv4 connection:
    208.123.73.88  packages.pfsense.org

    Now it works.



  • Adjusted my hosts file and success!
    Thank you!
