Freebsd-update issue

I have a server running 

I tried to update it today.  Freebsd-update fetch ran fine.  Freebsd-update install quickly showed:

freebsd-update install
Installing updates...cp: ///boot/kernel.old1/./.freebsd-update: File exists

and then just sits there.  I don’t detect any I/O with systat and while there are two freebsd-update processes, neither of them every shows in the top 40 with top.  Eventually my ssh connection to the server times out and it all goes away.  I don’t find any freebsd-update file in /boot/kernel.old1 either.  I tried removing /boot/kernel.old and /boot/kernel.old1 and install had the same behavior.
