System Upgrade, temporary DNS outage, package reinstall?



  • I upgraded from 2.2.5 to 2.2.6. When I did so my DNS stopped working temporarily, I saw a message on the console that it wasn't able to update/reinstall packages due to DNS not working.

    When the pfSense came back up and DNS started working again everything seems to be working, including all of the packages.

    Do I need to manually reinstall packages after the upgrade even if things seem to be working ok?



  • I'd monitor it for a while to see if everything is ok. But if your system, including packages, is working then in my opinion I'd leave it well enough alone.



  • There are relatively few changes between 2.2.5 and 2.2.6, so reinstalling packages in that scenario would have been more a precautionary step than anything else. If everything seems to be working, I'd leave well alone.
