I am trying to upgrade my FreeNAS Full installation (v0.687B1.2794 to the latest nightly build .2830) to test out some of the new features in that release. The upgrade fails with errors as detailed in my forum posting:

https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1950103&forum_id=507590

Please can we get the Full installation upgrade fixed so that this becomes a reliable process ?

Thanks

Chris

    This problem still exists when trying to upgrade my VMWare test system to 0.69.2937 and 0.69.2944. I am currently having to use 0.69.2924 which seems OK. Is there any progress towards getting this reliably fixed ?

    Hi,

    how big is the partition on which you've installed FreeNAS? 64Mb? If yes, try to install FreeNAS full again and use 70Mb for example. Then try to upgrade again. Maybe that is the problem. If so, we have to increase the min partition size to > 64Mb.

    Regards
    Volker

    The FreeNAS partition is 512mb as I have additional packages installed so space shouldn't be a problem. This happens on both my VMWare test system and on my 'production' system (if I let it). The error messages are slightly different in each case and are should on the original forum entry referenced in the bug.

    Hi Chris,

    if the problem still exists, please reopen this BR.
