  • Never mind… looks like it might've been something else...

    From the system log...

    Mar 28 14:48:45	php-fpm[44942]: /pkg_mgr_install.php: XML_RPC_Client: Connection to RPC server packages.pfsense.org:443 failed. Operation timed out 103
    Mar 28 14:48:45	php-fpm[44942]: /pkg_mgr_install.php: XMLRPC communication error: Operation timed out
    

    Another attempt a bit later worked just fine.
