Firmware and Packages
« on: November 15, 2017, 09:46:40 am »
Hello!

My firewall is on:

Current Base System 2.3.4_1
Latest Base System 2.3.4_1
StatusUp to date.

Is this really the last firmware? My feel is, that the update function is not working correctly, as I also can not list or update the packages. The error message is:

Packages

Unable to retrieve package information.

Any ideas?

Even for those 2.3.5 should be proposed now.

Go to System / Update / Update Settings change it to anything else, save
Change it to "Legacy Stable" or "Latest Stable", save
This might fix it.
2.3.5-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8400 @ 2.66GHz 8GB

No change.
The menu opens, but the 3 fields are simply blank. I have tried everyone with save and search for updates

No difference

Mine was saying that to me as well, when I knew there was a 2.4.1 available.
I rebooted the firewall and then 2.4.2 showed up.
Something was blocking it from checking properly.

Just do a fresh install with config recovery.

Do the quick and sure thing.
Save settings, and re install with latest version.
