Description rainer 2015-02-18 19:50:11 UTC
handbook says:
ezjail-admin update -r

to update basejail with freebsd-update.

This is not right, the update -r subcommand is only available as "install -r".

ezjail only supports -u (freebsd-update) and -U (freebsd-update -r).

However, the way it's currently done is not ideal.

A better way seems to be described here:

But it's very tiresome (because of freebsd-updates poor merge)

Is the handbook suggesting to just re-install the basejail with the newer release?
