Upgrade 2.2.2 to 2.2.3, Stuck Installing Packages
I just upgraded from v2.2.2 to v2.2.3, but my box seems to be stuck installing packages (for 2 hours now, not real it seems).
I have tried a reboot, same thing.
One : is it possible to have more info ?
I upgraded, version 2.2.3 re-installed 'my' package (nut and system patches) on all was well.
So, what up ? Your internet connection is broke ?
What if you remove all package info from the config file - and import that modified file - afterwards, reinstall each package one by one to see "who blows up when".
Instead of messing with config imports: IIRC there some Unlock button in Diagnostics - Backup/Restore to nuke the lock and reinstall the packages? Other than that, virtually no info here to debug anything.
Got the same problem…..after 30 min I force reboot and then the system was ok. I have few packages installed (Snort, pfBlockerNG-dev) and they are working.
I strongly recommend, before any major update, to save your config.
Thanks for the pointers!
Took 4 reboots, but after that - it was up and running … :).
for me i use cron, squid and squidguard and first one installs fine then next 2 stuck on extracting.
after many reboots squid also installed but squidguard causes the machine to be inaccessible from remote location
fatal error: call to undefined function sg_init() in /use/local/pkg/squidguard…...
to me it looks like when the tar program is running which extract the package installer, it messes up something or gets stuck on it forever thats y the reinstall issues happen.
on alix nanobsd not much of a problem unless u use packages, the base pfsense 2.2.3 upgrade has no issues, all my machines upgraded and came online just fine but the package installation is the issue, i even tried unlocking the reinstalls and then doing it one at a time but all still get stuck on extracting forever, sometimes some manage to go past it after like 10mins and if they do then they work fine
I'm having the issue with it stuck on packages. I was walking a friend through installing pfsense and packages, it was getting stuck on extracting no matter what. I thought he was doing something wrong so I installed it at my location and have run into the exact same issue. Both using USB drives. He installed it to a HDD and it fixed the issue. Anyone know what could be causing it? Its only on USB drives that the issue shows itself. Could anyone test?
Waste of time. Use the latest 2.2.4 snapshots; sync mounts with slow drives -> disaster.
