Description

If a 2.5.2 install has zabbix-agent52 installed and tries to upgrade to 2.6.0 from console or GUI it will segfault.

Expected behavior: zabbix-agent52 doesn't seem to exist in 2.6.0 repo. Upgrader should recognize this and upgrade zabbix-agent52 to zabbix-agent54.

Actual behavior: Segfault

This error is still happening. Just worked with a customer facing this issue while attempting to upgrade.

For what it's worth this isn't a problem specific to pfSense or our repositories. I've seen this in base FreeBSD when updating pkg-based installs from older versions to a current version. Same scenario, if there is a package installed not present on the new repository it can lead to a segfault.
