2.3-ALPHA console option 13 upgrade hangs after installing the upgrade
My test system is an APU using the 4GB nanoBSD serial image on an 8GB SD card.
I have done 2 upgrades so far. For the first one I had no serial console cable connected so was unable to see all that really happened.
For the upgrade I just did, I recorded all the serial console output.
1) Finds the things that need upgrading.
2) Downloads them
3) Reboots and starts the installation steps, which seem to complete fine.
External config loader 1.0 is now starting...
Launching the init system...pid 21 (sh), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
At that point it hangs - I left it for 30 minutes like that.
Power-cycle it and it boots fine with all the upgraded software, as far as I can see.

I'm guessing the error happening because the version you were running before upgrade contained the old version of pfSense-upgrade script, that was not ready for nanobsd. Can you try to gitsync it, or at least copy current pfSense-upgrade script into it and upgrade it again?

This is now somewhat out-of-date. Menu 13 - Upgrade from console - now does stuff to the other slice, get "Illegal number: -1", switches slices and reboots. I get whatever old version was on that other slice.
It might be better to close this, because the whole mechanism of the upgrade has changed since I logged this issue.
The "Illegal number" thing is forum https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=100603.0 - I will add to that thread with my the current symptoms.
