Have you considered entering single user mode and trying to get back
to 7.2 ("freebsd-update rollback")? In this case, you will need to
re-install samba (you've removed it); but as you are already in 8,
have you tried "pkg_add -r samba43"?

Well, FreeBSD isn't DOS, nor is it "Windows". It's a complex operating
system (as all operating systems are a complex thing), and it needs
more than knowledge about config files and scripts to maintain it
properly and provide good administration. But finally, that's what
you learn by using it.
