Description

Running pfSense-upgrade as a non-root/admin user will produce errors that are not obviously related to lacking privileges to run it. As a courtesy to the user, it should exit if it is not being run by uid=0. That should cover it being run by root, admin, or via sudo.

  • Target version changed from 2.4.1 to 2.4.2

Moving target to 2.4.2 as we need 2.4.1 sooner than anticipated.
