Day before yesterday, I used the old DVD image from 02-27 to install the system on a 3rd HDD. It worked, and I was able to Triple Boot Windows 10, Ubuntu 17.04, and TrueOS. After booting into TrueOS, I completed the setup, logged in as my new user and was informed by
pc-updatemanager that updates were available. Being used to this behavior and after reading the Handbook on updates, I downloaded them, rebooted, let them install, and restarted. To my disappointment, the update failed. The new kernel refuses to mount my ZFS root, and reports CAM STATUS errors on all drives.

Things I Have Tried
- Thinking I had done something wrong, I downloaded and burned the new DVD image yesterday, only to find out that the new DVD produces the same issue as
pc-updatemanagerdoes on my already installed system. (TrueOS-Desktop-2017-03-31-x64-DVD.iso)
- Thanks to the Boot Environment, I can get back to my initial BE that works except for the fact that I can’t install packages from AppCafe due to the fact that updatemanager complains that my local repository is out of sync.
I’d like some pointers on investigating the differences between the kernel that boots the initial BE versus the non functional BE(I know this is not a failing drive issue, as the initial BE’s kernel boots normally. The functional BE was installed using the 2-27 iso). I’m thinking maybe a module is missing etc, but I’m too new to *BSD style OS’es to know where to look. Note that I’m experienced with Gentoo, so if you tell me where to look, I’ll know what to look for.
