Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue…
Fetching meta.conf: 100% 163 B 0.2kB/s 00:01
Fetching packagesite.txz: 0%


Doesn’t seem to want to update?


It seems that there is not to update.
But maybe i’m wrong.

The FreeBSD and so also NomadBSD Servers for Updates are sometimes very slow. I guess you should try again a few hours later.

Hmm, it’s doing it again.
It doesn’t seem to be able to synchronize the databases.
Firefox works so i have internet but it can’t seem to fetch any packages lists.

Inicdentally the Linux/Brave browser doesn’t seem to be able to connect either

No problem here, just now:

> sudo pkg upgrade

FreeBSD repository update completed. 30513 packages processed.
All repositories are up to date.

I’m still on Nomad 1.4 - FreeBSD v12.2 though…

Mine just fetched 7KB i 2 hours 10mins then timed out.

Firefox seems fine, loads pages no bother

12.2-RELEASE-p8 is the newest update.
You might consider running:

> sudo freebsd-update fetch install

I’m not sure, it will help with your other problem, but it might…

It’s like everything from the Command Line doesn’t work - with regards to internet anyway.
Can’t update
Can’t fetch
Can’t install
I’m typing this in firefox on the same machine, no probs

Looking here in the forum at the problems other users have when upgrading the many packages (partially caused by Qt and Python 3.8), I think the best upgrade path for both of us is;
Waiting for the next NomadBSD release and reinstalling/upgrading that way…

Yeah, it messed me up a bit, nothing chronic but highlighted my lack of a back-up!
I’m using GhostBSD at the moment, similar but will check back in, the linux browser function with Nomad is a big bonus for me
