I started with a 9.2-release system with xfce-4.10_5 plus related/needed other
stuff and did the following: freebsd-update to 9.2-RELEASE-p10 #0; updated ports
with portsnap; and finally installed pgk via pkg_add.
So to try some things I did: 'pkg info' which looked okay; 'pkg check -d -n -a'
returned no ouput, I figured no news was good news. For pkg stats I got:
Local package database:
Installed packages: 418
Disk space occupied: 1 GB
Still cool. Then I tried 'pkg upgrade -n' and got 'Nothing to do' after several
hundred of the following:
"pkg: sqlite: near "ORDER": syntax error (pkgdb.c:3186)"
probably 418 lines but written to SYSERROR so difficult to count. Several
questions come to mind:
1) The system was build around Dec 2013, so I think 'nothing to do is probably
not the right answer.
2) Are the sql errors correct? Probably because you can not order the null
set but should be suppressed??
I am late to the game but I did scan PRs and questions before asking.
An unrelated question. Everything I used seems to be there except for pkg_tree.
Perhaps the need goes away but I would not expect an autoupdate of 418 packages
to work after 7 months of no changes. pkg_tree was helpful in attacking
upgrading in cases I did not want to delete all and start again.
Thanks for any thoughts and/or guidence
