Description

Upon upgrading to pfSense 2.4, I was unable to perform the recommended approach to move from freeradius 2.x to 3.x because 2.x would not appear in the list of installed packages (so I could uninstall 2.x).

The workaround was to uninstall the package via the command line:

pkg delete <pkg name> -y

Note: "pkg info" will still list the pkg as being installed, as will the services dialog/etc even upon logout/login. I did not try a reboot.

I don't know if this is the case for other packages.

Addendum: v2.4 effectively breaks freeradius 2.x - the service will not start.

  • Project changed from pfSense Packages to pfSense
  • Subject changed from 2.4 Package Manager: Does Not List Freeradius 2.x to 2.4 Package Manager: Does Not List Installed Packages which have been removed from the repository.
  • Category set to Package System
  • Assignee set to Renato Botelho
  • Target version set to 2.4.2

It may still be a bug though. The package is indeed gone from the server-side database but it's still installed locally. It has to be removed, but it appears that the GUI won't let you since it isn't listed.

Ideally, the package should still show up in the list of installed packages so that it can be removed from there, and marked as having been removed upstream.

I suspect this may also be in some way related to #7917

Well yes, the inability to produce/take into account any offline results is indeed a bug.

It seems to be anything it can't validate against the current repository (offline or online). It should list them all in either case, and the root cause may be the same here.

Apparently this has already been reported in Bug #6241

I closed that one out instead, since this one is already setup for the right target.
