Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update1.FreeBSD.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.
The getting of the public key seems to be the issue no matter how i go about
trying to upgrade .. so my question now is, why is this and are there other
mirror sites that can be used ?
Below is my Uname -a output if it has any relevance..
FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE #11: Thu Aug 7 17:32:22 EST 2008
