Thanks! Nope -r should be it, but I don't think you can specify
patch level. If I do:
freebsd-update -r 11.1-RELEASE-p7 upgrade
Fetching metadata signature for 11.1-RELEASE-p7 from
I'm trying with just:
freebsd-update -r 11.1-RELEASE upgrade
to see where I get, but I suspect I'll be at 11.1-RELEASE-p8 at
the end of it. (I don't want -p8 right this second).
I'll send an update when I see how it goes...
