Re: [pfSense] Upgrades to 2.4.3.x failing after updating metadata

2018-05-23 Thread Steve Yates
FWIW I upgraded our SG-4860 pair and saw the same behavior, fails after 
the metadata update.  I waited 5 minutes and it did not restart and saw no 
indication in system log it was going to, or upgrading.

Huh, I should remember to look there first.  So used to this list. 

The "sort of scary" part is comments like "Same thing here.  The page reported 
the upgrade had failed.  We waited about two minutes and the page refreshed and 
we logged in.  The upgrade had worked after all."  Like it's running in the 
background despite the failure?  And I ran it a second time during this?  
That's what "KPA" posted last night: "The WebGUI upgrade still seems to suffer 
from the same problem as it did a while ago which is that it gets disconnected 
from the real upgrade run and reports a failure when the upgrade is actually 
running successfully in the background."

I have to do these upgrades remotely, I have very little choice.

What is the difference between executing the php installer via point
and click and doing the upgrade via ssh?

I see the entire upgrade, and the last thing I see before I get
disconnected is the call for reboot.

It is high risk compared to serial, but when you are doing the job
remotely, and the pfsense device is your core router, how do I log in
and see the serial data?

Wow. I call that a high risk upgrade method. Once it logs you out of ssh,
you just sit there and hope it comes back up. You need to hook your serial
port (or virtual serial port if you have a BMC that supports that) up as
the real device console so you can monitor the entire process.

2018-05-16 Thread Steve Yates
I've used the console in the recent past...there was something around the 2.3.3 
upgrade where you had to switch it to the development branch and back again to 
get it to work: 
https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=125873.msg695386#msg695386

Overall seems like the GUI should work...
