I tried to update an amd64 FreeBSD 9.0 p0 system via freebsd-update tonight. It fetched everything fine. However, the install just hung after about 10 minutes. The 2 sh processes are basically doing nothing. Not consuming any processor time and not doing any I/O. I killed it and tried another install. Same thing. Tried a rollback. Same thing. The system still runs mostly. Top takes about 5 minutes before it produces any output. It shows basically nothing running. I really don't want to reinstall again as the system has a lot of files customized including many ports. Is there any way to recover this?
