I actually got to this over the weekend. I did a rollback that appeared
to work without a problem. After the rollback, all working again under
11.2-RELEASE-p14. I then did 'pkg-static update -f' that appeared to
update all packages where 'pkg update' said all were up to date. Then I
did a normal 'pkg upgrade' and all packages updated as expected without
issue. After a reboot to make sure all was good, I then proceeded with
the upgrade once again...
freebsd-update -r 11.3-RELEASE upgrade
All completed as expected, but when I rebooted after the first
'freebsd-update install' was issued, I am now faced with 'BTX halted'
without reaching the boot menu.
Is there something I can try for this issue to boot back into the OS?
