Description

Today when 2.3.2 released to public, some peoples got troubles with update.
The main problem is that when update fails for known or whatever reason, for example internet connection just lost or remote server is down, you can continue to update only manually via console menu. What if pfSense team just make this update stuff more reliable?
For example if downloading fails then it automatically retries in random seconds value or even minutes just to be sure not to hammering servers with requests. Another good thing would be some "PAUSE" option for update in progress. Sometimes update can be longer then planned maintenance time and it is better to cancel or pause update.
