Not obtaining update status on nanobsd when read-only mounted
I update my alid2d13 from pfsense 2.2.6 to 2.3 two days ago. Before doing so, I uninstalled all packages.
After install, I made no changes to the config and did not yet re-install any packages.
I noticed two things:
- my installation of pfsense cannot obtain update status, instead the little wheel indicating activity keeps on turning... (see att'd pic)
- my installation is lagging. it takes more >15 secs. to, say, switch from Dashboard to showing the DHCP leases, but that applies to all other menu items.
I rebooted twice, but no effect.
Is that an issue with the update or with my config ? But I made no change at all to the config.
Move to forum, if you consider this not to be bug.
Thanks for taking care

If you browse to System>Update, what do you get?

Chris, it just sticks there. I use Opera 36 as my standard browser and have cleared the browser's cache. Same happens if I use Windows (10)' Edge browser.
Browsing to System>Update doesn't work at all (neither Opera nor Edge). It just hangs and won't go to System/Update...

I am experiencing the same issue on my alix2d13. I checked the "prefer IPv4 over IPv6"-box in advanced settings, cleared the browser cache (Chromium 50) an rebooted. Unfortunately the issue remains. If I browse to System>Update I get an "504 Gateway Time-out (nginx)" screen after some waiting.
One time I acutally got to the System>Update screen. This was during a reboot, more to the point shortly after starting the reboot process but before the alix completed rebooting. But I was not able to reproduce this.

It's not likely specific to your config, rather the environment, but yeah send me a backup. cmb at pfsense dot org
Also, go to a command prompt, option 8 at the console via SSH, and run 'pkg update'. What does that show?

Running Alix box and experiencing same issues. Update gear never stops in dashboard. System->Update results in 504 error. Running pkg update in shell returns nothing.

- Subject changed from pfsense 2.3 not obtaining update status to Not obtaining update status on nanobsd when read-only mounted
- Status changed from New to Confirmed
I believe new subject is the root cause of everyone's issue here. Where 'pkg update' just returns with no output, that's why. The update check fails for the same reason. Mount rw and everything works as expected.

thanks. I checked this when I got home. But: my system already was mounted r/w (see att'd picture). I have rebooted, but still no change. CPU is @ 100% (pic #2). Anyone else here who is experiencing the same issue who has resolved it with changing to r/w ?

- Status changed from Confirmed to Resolved
The issue I turned this into is now fixed by fixing #6184.
M S: if you're still having issues permanently rw mounted, including after a reboot after setting it that way, there is something else going on in that case and I hijacked this to be something different. Since subject issue is fixed and this has been referenced in multiple places as such, marking this as resolved. Followed up with you on the email thread to see where things stand.
