So far 2.4.x + has been a derpy mess.

At the moment I have two boxes who can't see any installed packages (even though they're available in the console and I can use them) and that boxes won't check for updates or new packages.

I also get the nginx 504 message I think it is:  https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=110515.0;topicseen

I also can't check for updates like these guys:  https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=139276.0

OpenVPN stops working, I can't SSH, I can't get to the webUI...the box has to be physically rebooted and with a holiday in the US upon us who wants to go do that for a customer that needs great up time?

I regret upgrading to 2.4 from 2.3 for this client!!!

HELP!

I'd say there is every chance you have broken something or something has broken that can be fixed.  What packages are you using?

I'm sure it can be fixed but I can't find what's broken!

From /usr/local/pkg - I use:

mailreport.xml            openvpn-client-export.xml servicewatchdog.xml
miniupnpd.inc             pfblockerng               servicewatchdog_cron.php
miniupnpd.xml             pfblockerng.xml           snort

I wanted to update the pfblockerng package to the latest after updating to the 2.4.2 release on the two fw's that are derp on the nginx 502 lockup problem but I can't do it form the gui.  Can I from the cli?

Seems that pfbNG is what's causing the nginx problem.

Thanks for any help!

I did contact a colleague and asked him to look at his and his fw on 2.4.1 says there's an update to 2.4.2 and seems to be working correctly.  These are the only two I have in this state of derp.

Oh!  I will also say it's not updating the graphs and thermal sensors either which strikes me as odd but a hint at what might be going on...

O...M...G.

I was using the new FF 57 or whatever just came out.  I tried chrome for shits and giggles (and I hate Google which is why I have it as a terd option).

All the stuff WORKS in chrome!  Gawd.

How dumb.  Maybe I need to refresh FF or perhaps something.

So my problem was related to only FF!!!

Sorry for the forum spam but maybe this will help people LOL.

There was a thread recently about how all the misfortunes of life were due to a pfsense upgrade.
Mine was particularly bad...   Still suffering. 

Coincidence...   It happens.

Smooth upgrade from 2.4.1 to 2.4.2 - thanks for all the hard work you guys put into this.

I run pfSense on ESXI 6.0 latest update. I removed "kern.vty=sc" of /boot/loader.conf.local (I had this VT issue with pfSense 2.4.0).

Then I upgraded via Shell to 2.4.2 and everything is working fine (No VT issue and no Framebuffer issue https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/7975 (https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/7975) )

So thank you for your work!

One question remains: Is pfSense still based on PHP 5.6 and why is it not upgraded to the much faster PHP 7.1.2 or 7.2 (release date on 30 November)?
