Title: [SOLVED] Web Gui does not show 15.1.7.1 update as being available.
Post by: Davesworld on March 08, 2015, 12:09:27 am
No matter how many times I tell it to check, I get: At Sat Mar 7 14:45:55 PST 2015 no updates found.

I am using a fresh install of 15.1.7-78bdb9aef (amd64) .

No, I did not get ahead of myself and do the command line update as I know that comes after. My guess is that the gui update is supposed to change the file names and checksums so that the command line program knows what to grab and install.

This is baffling me.

Are you using the LibreSSL version? The update to that one isn't released till Sunday.

No, I'm using the standard version.

Both mirrors are in sync, I just checked. pkgng works on top of HTTP, maybe you have a proxy that caches the remote content?

On the root console try:

Code: [Select]
# pkg update -f
# pkg upgrade -y

Does this help to move to 15.1.7.1? Let use see the output if it's not helping.

Edit: Or maybe your Internet connectivity is not working as expected.

I have the same problem: I've installed 15.1.6.1-e7916b44d (amd64) / FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p5 and clicking on 'click to check now' in the WebGUI results in 'At Sun Mar 8 21:16:16 CET 2015 no updates found'

At the shell I've tried to opnsense-update but after the reboot the version is still the same.
Also pkg update -f and pkg upgrade -y did upgrade the opnsense version

Did I do something wrong or is there a problem with the system?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Jochen

Firmware upgrade from the GUI works for me.

If I go to https://pkg.opnsense.org/sets/ I also do not see 15.1.7.1 there either. As one would imagine, /usr/local/etc/version still shows 15.1.7 as well as /usr/local/sbin/opnsense-update still showing 15.1.7 and the respective file names. Since the update script points to https://pkg.opnsense.org/sets/ I figured that 15.7.1 files should be in the sets folder.

The base system did not change, so opnsense-update does nothing (except reinstall, because the 15.1.6.1 version does not yet remember the version it installed).

I have checked both package mirrors, they can be found here:

https://pkg.opnsense.org/FreeBSD:10:amd64/latest/All/
https://pkg.opnsense.org/FreeBSD:10:i386/latest/All/

In this directory, there is an opnsense-15.1.7.1.txz, which is the latest version. It may very well be the database index files being cached by a proxy in your network then.

I need more info on the version you are using, Are you using LibreSSL? Are you using i386 or amd64?

I will double check with an older system upgrade in a bit and let you know if there is something else going on. Thank you all for your help in tracing this down. :)

Ok, I'm using a 64 bit version but using the 386 version on other hardware did the same thing. The wan of this box is connected directly to a bridged adsl modem and wan does indeed have an internet address that is reachable from the internet. If there were a proxy on my end, it would only be on this box but we know that Opnsense doesn't have it yet.

No libressl here.

The links you provided do indeed have the latest version in them. The file  /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/OPNsense.conf shows as :

OPNsense: {
  url: "pkg+http://pkg.opnsense.org/${ABI}/latest",
  mirror_type: "srv",
  priority: 11,
  enabled: yes
}

Is the value ${ABI} supposed to tell it that this is supposed to be FreeBSD:10:amd64?

Yeah, ABI expands to FreeBSD:version:architecture. The setup is completely normal, but we have multiple accounts of this happening.

I just tested the upgrade from 15.1.6.1 on i386 and it works as expected. I am starting to suspect the ADSL provider does content caching, whether you are aware or not (that would be really bad for a number of reasons). What is your ISP, if you are willing to share this info?

After talking with Jos we suspect the pkgng database "disappeared" from the system. This is easily confirmed by:

# pkg info

It should tell you there are no packages installed, even though they are all there. A preliminary fix is

# pkg install opnsense

But the system is not 100% consistent after that. We recommend a clean install using the config import and try to narrow this down further.

# pkg info did not echo anything at all. # pkg install opnsense actually did pull 15.1.7.1 though. Was this expected?

Expected and a wee bit dreaded. I am hunting for the cause now and already spoke with FreeBSD/pkgng devs why this is happening. It might have to do with our system setup that has an edge case or legacy code causing this after all. pkgng is new and some old code might be colliding with its operation.

Did you import a pfSense config with packages? Did you enable MFS for /var? Any help with tracking this down is highly appreciated.
Title: Re: Web Gui does not show 15.1.7.1 update as being available.
Post by: franco on March 09, 2015, 06:12:32 pm
I have found what looks like the issue in conjunction with MFS for /var. A fix has been pushed to the repository already and will be part of 15.1.7.2. Please let me know if you did use MFS. :)

No on the pfsense config, yes on mfs for /var. Speaking of the latter, on other systems, to save flash drives, only /tmp, and only some directories in /var were mounted using MFS or even better TMPFS.

Thanks for the reply, good, then I think we have this sorted for the next release push. Thank you.

TMPFS I would like to move up on my list now. Can you tell me more about selective /var mounting? that sounds like a sensible approach with TMPFS as the base.

In looking at /var, it looks as though a somewhat reverse situation might be needed, most of /var would run fine in TMPFS, in fact all of it if the system once an hour backed up /var/log, as well as /var/db into their own tarballs or combined into just two or even one. As it is now, only rrd and dhcp leases are backed up optionally at the optional selected frequencies. For flash installations, the logs should not be kept all that long as you would be able to don on a 120GB hard drive. Personally, my file server is set to listen for forwarded logs and I made the /var partition on that server huge so it won't fill up anytime soon. On flash type installs where /var is mounted in volatile ram, forwarding logs to a server are the best way to go and have the system, Opnsense in this case, rotate them out in no more than a week.

As far as TMPFS, whatever formats and mounts MFS now, would be easy to convert to TMPFS, delete the format and partition section and just mount it with optional arguments. I like no arguments and just let it size at the default 50% of ram. It's also not the greatest idea to run swap on a Flash system. My test sytem is using two Cfast (native sata interface) running in a mirror and 16GB of ram, I think my next install I will NOT put a swap partition in it at all. The Cfast cards I have use MLC which like CF cards have a limited amount of read/write cycles.

So the new install media will have tmpfs usage shipped with 15.1.9. The bsdinstaller bits are yet to be added to deploy it on the installed systems as well. No ETA, but we're making progress. Thanks. :)

Will this require a re-installation, or will the update take care of it as well?
Title: Re: [SOLVED] Web Gui does not show 15.1.7.1 update as being available.
Post by: franco on April 07, 2015, 12:55:14 pm
Probably without a reinstall, although I would prefer proper noauto fstab entries, which should require a reinstall, but then again those need a legacy fallback. :/

Sounds like some serious testing is in order before pushing that update then.
