On pfSense 2.3.3, we are occasionally seeing that the UI is retrieving the latest version of pfSense as 0.18_1 and does provide the ability to "upgrade"

This is on the stable path, no changes made to the update settings.

I looked in the logs, but did not see anything out of the ordinary or references to the updater. If there's any logs I can pull, let me know.

I've pushed a fix on pfSense-upgrade 0.19.

pfSense-upgrade was considering its new version as a new firmware version. The issue is harmless and if you finish the upgrade nothing bad will happen.

Fix is on version 0.19. As soon as it's available it's safe to manually run 'pkg upgrade pfSense-upgrade' on console to go to latest verssion

Hi guys,

I don't know if this is related or not, but thought I'd throw it out.

I have a vm running 2.3.3. I overshot the release and ran 2.3.4 for a couple of days, but I gitsynced back to 2.3.3 per this post:

it came back up & reported 2.3.3. Only thing was when I checked for updates I still got a 2.3.4 version number. I just checked the updater & now it's offering me version ".20".

I also see an issue on factory 2.3.3. I see "The system is on a later version than the official release" in the system widget. If I go into System / Update, I am shown "0.20" as the latest base version.

I have the XG-1540 with 10GB addon NIC and I'm seeing the same thing as Denny Page

Yeah, the answer is still the same. Run pkg upgrade pfSense-upgrade from shell.
