Description Josef Karthauser 2017-03-27 08:55:13 UTC
The pkg command has a --chroot flag enabling it to chroot to a directory before installing a package.

We are seeing a failure to run a post install script in this context, suggesting that the chroot isn't being used in all contexts:

you state --chroot but actually use -r which is not a chroot but a rootdir.

btw do you know there is -j ?
Comment 2 Josef Karthauser 2017-03-28 21:02:59 UTC
Sorry - you are right I wrongly reported it was a chroot option problem. Mea culpa. I was trying lots of things and it was late when I raise the bug.

However, the install still fails with rootdir which is what I was reporting (although I thought it was a chroot issue):

   [1/1] Extracting influxdb-1.1.0: 100%
   cp: /usr/local/etc/influxd.conf.sample: No such file or directory
   pkg: POST-INSTALL script failed

It looks like the POST-INSTALL script isn't being run in the context of the rootdir, which looks like an issue to me.

(p.s. the reason I can't run -j is that the jail doesn't have network connectivity to the outside world - it's a vimage jail. Similarly running chromed doesn't work because it switches to using the resolv.conf within the chromed environment which isn't configured for the public network).

I have a problem with pkg on FreeBSD 11-RELEASE  too. I am using Synth and I update 745 ports and when start updateing it stopped at:
Installing sndio-1.2.0_2...
===> Creating groups.
Using existing group '_sndio'.
===> Creating users
Creating user '_sndio' with uid '702'.
pw: user '_sndio' disappeared during update
pkg: PRE-INSTALL script failed
Unfortunately, the system upgraded failed.

It happened today March 29th.
