[Howto] solve freebsd-update invalid signature error

posted in: computer | 0

check, if you have a working /usr/bin/openssl

/usr/bin/openssl version

file /usr/bin/openssl
ldd /usr/bin/openssl


check, if you have a valid signature-file for freebsd-update

(you can safely remove it, because a new run of freebsd-update fetches it again)


After that the update should proceed without failures (e.g. from 11.0-RELEASE to 11.1-RELEASE)

freebsd-update -r 11.1-RELEASE upgrade

freebsd-update install

reboot your system

freebsd-update install
