Hi Glen,

this announce mentions just amd64 and i386 as able to use freebsd-update.
On the BETA2 announce there was a mention of aarch64 as well

I then tried to use it now on a 13.0-BETA4 system:

root at rpi4_bsd:~ # freebsd-update -r 13.0-RC2 upgrade
src component not installed, skipped

kernel/generic kernel/generic-dbg world/base world/base-dbg

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:

Does this look reasonable (y/n)?

The system is:

FreeBSD rpi4_bsd 13.0-BETA4 FreeBSD 13.0-BETA4 #0
releng/13.0-n244592-e32bc253629: Fri Feb 26 05:53:09 UTC 2021

I did not typed "y" yet. Is it safe to go through with it?
