# pkg upgrade
[32/338] Upgrading linux_base-c7 from 7.7.1908_1 to 7.8.2003_1...
Cannot install package: kernel missing 64-bit Linux support
pkg: PRE-INSTALL script failed
# uname -a
FreeBSD ayo 12.1-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE-p3 GENERIC  amd64

I installed this with pkg. I'm not sure why I'm getting an error upgrading? How could I have installed it to begin with? Same kernel, it's not custom on this machine.

this solved the problem.

# kldload linux64.ko
# pkg upgrade

Not sure what the solution is, but if someone runs across the same problem and finds this report it's an easy fix I guess.
