Description Maurizio Giunti 2017-08-24 10:13:38 UTC
Sometimes freebsd-update can't work because some DNS do not resolve domain with upcase chars.


Error I get:

# freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update1.FreeBSD.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.

Workaround:

Edit /etc/freebsd-update.conf and change following line:

ServerName update.FreeBSD.org

into

ServerName update.freebsd.org


I know this is not exactly a FreeBSD problem, but it can prevent system updates on certain providers.
