If i have read the man pages correct the command im using being ...

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.0-CURRENT
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update1.FreeBSD.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.

Are there more mirrors or am i missing something here ?
