I run 6.1-RELEASE, and am trying to upgrade it to 6.2-RELEASE using
the script, and the instructions provided here:,
without success!

The script hits sporadic problems fetching files. For eg., for quiet
sometime now this happens:
dexter# sh -f freebsd-update.conf -d /usr/upgrade -r
6.2-RELEASE upgrade
Looking up mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 6.1-RELEASE from done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Fetching 1 metadata patches. done.
Applying metadata patches... done.
Fetching 1 metadata files... failed.

In a previous try, it went through a great deal ahead, upto fetching
the patches and all, and then failed.

Is this because of a connectivity issue on my end, or some issue with I don't see any connectivity issues from my side
though. Thanks in advance.
