I upgraded a 12-stable system @r349995 to 12-release-p10 @r352201.

Before upgrading, I checked to make sure FREEBSD_UPDATE was not present in
/etc/src.conf. Then downloaded sources, make cleanworld buildworld buildkernel
installkernel mergemaster -p installworld mergemaster -Ui reboot then make
check-old delete-old delete-old-libs reboot again

Found that freebsd-update still not installed, so cd into
/usr/src/usr.sbin/freebsd-update && make && make install

freebsd-update was found but couldn't find any servers so copied
/var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/freebsd-update.conf into /etc

Now it finds the server to update from but it fails to get the metadata like

# freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 12.0-RELEASE from update1.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Fetching 2 metadata files... failed.

files and perms in /var/db/freebsd-update look like this:

drwxr-xr-x  18 root  wheel   512B Sep 11 21:52 ..

-rw-r--r--   1 root  wheel   113B Sep 11 21:52 tag.new

What am I doing wrong? There's plenty of space on the system.
