https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=260281 Bug ID: 260281 Summary: etcupdate: dry-run (-n) causes following actual run to skip changes Product: Base System Version: Unspecified Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: misc Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Doing `etcupdate -n` itself runs OK, but following `etcupdate -B` does NOT do anything, hence nothing is actually updated. The only workaround I have is NOT to try dry-run. This would be caused by any commit done in april 2021 on main (MFC'ed to stable/13 in june 2021). It would be because the same trees are used for dry-run and actual run. (Not looked into the code. Just a thought.) Maybe using dedicated trees (older one is copied from actual current one, building current tree on dedicated place and delete them every time the dry-run finishes) for dry-run would fix. And copying /etc to some temporary place and applying changes to it, copy back to /etc may be help for your issue, I think. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
