Description

pfSense-upgrade can fail when the pfSense-boot post install script tries to update the bot loader if the first EFI partition is not on the boot drive.

For example if the main boot drive is not installed as UEFI and the installation media is still present. The script tries and fails to update the wrong drive aborting the upgrade:

Number of packages to be reinstalled: 1
[1/1] Reinstalling pfSense-boot-23.09...
[1/1] Extracting pfSense-boot-23.09: .......... done
mount_msdosfs: /dev/msdosfs/EFISYS: Read-only file system
pkg-static: POST-INSTALL script failed
 failed.
