I was using freebsd-update to upgrade from 6.2 to 7.0-RELEASE. The upgrade and install of the kernel went fine, then I reran freebsd-update after rebooting to get the userland stuff. Midway through installing updates, I got the error: Installing updates.../libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared
Hello, I'm not certain of the following. I think you needed to update to 6.3 first and after the first update, install compat6x. Regardless, you may be able to recover by doing 'freebsd-update rollback'. That will undo the most recent changes and hopefully get you a working system.
