Cannot upgrade to 18.03


#1

I cant upgrade to 18.03
misc/ true-desktop installation failed
back to the prevoius BE

i tried sudo pc-updatemanager pkgcheck
sudo pc-updatemanager pkgupdate
sudo pc-updatemanager startupdate
but problem still exist

It drive me mad… every update are problems…
Freebsd no problems, DragonFly bsd no problems, GhostBSD no problems/// netbsd no problemns, openBSD - no problems…
ONLY TRUE OS ( PC_BSD ) every update problems!!!


#2

Well, sometimes there are problems, sometimes there are not. Even upgrading Windows and MacOS can have problems sometimes. Only time I’ve had problems with a TrueOS upgrade it’s been CDN syncing issues.
That said, are you asking for help on trying to upgrade or figure out why you had a problem?
If you want help, can you tell us a bit more about the system you are trying to update?
Is it dedicated boot for TrueOS, is it multi-boot?
Have you looked at the log files for the update manager?
Have you tried adding a “-f” to the pkgupdate command? This often helps, so I usually just add it when I run the command.
Was it running STABLE before the update?
Have you checked free space?

Have you tried the commands @RodMyers posted here (it talks about IPFS network, but even if you didn’t switch they make sure that everything is consistent on your system).

Once you change to using the IPFS network You will need to sync your system as well, run the following commands; sudo pc-updatemanager confcheck sudo pc-updatemanager syncconf sudo pc-updatemanager pkgcheck

Yes i have tried this and -f command also.
The whole upgrade process takes 1h 30 minutes… iam westing my time…
I have a lot of machine to update but only one with true os…
I am stuck in misc/true-desktop installation failed
back to the last BE
no package is upgraded


#5

be aware, IPFS crashed yesterday, so need to stay on the CDN. Whenever you change methods you need to re-sync the database;

cat bin/repo-sync
#! /bin/sh
sudo pc-updatemanager confcheck
sudo pc-updatemanager syncconf
sudo pc-updatemanager pkgcheck

CDN should be synced now, so no mis-match error, if fails, post the error message


#6

no wrong output from var/log/messages

#11

did you try adding the -f to force on the pkgupdate command?

pc-updatemanager pkgupdate -f

I just did my STABLE this morning and it worked fine. I did exactly what @RodMyers says, except for the last one where I added the -f. Why not try that?
