Upgrading FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT in-place : Fetching public key fails


I've gotten FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT installed on a Raspberry Pi 3 and have been looking through the Handbook about updates and upgrades. I can install packages just fine it seems but as far as system updates go, it is not possible. I was hoping to walk it forward to the latest version.

Instead I get the following error when trying to fetch the binary updates.

What have I missed?

Code:
# freebsd-update -v debug fetch
src component not installed, skipped
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update5.freebsd.org... fetch: http://update5.freebsd.org/12.0-CURRENT/arm64/pub.ssl: Not Found
failed.
Fetching public key from update6.freebsd.org... fetch: http://update6.freebsd.org/12.0-CURRENT/arm64/pub.ssl: Not Found
failed.
Fetching public key from update4.freebsd.org... fetch: http://update4.freebsd.org/12.0-CURRENT/arm64/pub.ssl: Not Found
failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.
I can ping each of those hosts, so it's not a connectivity issue, I think.

Have you tried reaching the pub.ssl file? Because that does not exist indeed. If you had read the manpage, you'd know why:

Quote:
the FreeBSD Security Team only builds updates for releases shipped in binary form by the FreeBSD Release Engineering Team, e.g., FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE and FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE, but not FreeBSD 9.3-STABLE or FreeBSD 11-CURRENT.
Thus, it is not supposed to work like this.

Ok. What's the timeline for the arrival of FreeBSD 12-RELEASE give or take 3 months?

As per freebsd-update(8), -stable and -current are not supported.

You will need to run 11.1-release and then upgrade once 12.0-release is officially released: https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.0R/schedule.html

If you want to follow -current, you install from a snapshot and then you build from source to follow that branch. If that doesn't appeal, avoid -current and just install -release.

Ok. Thanks. Since the RPi3 is not supported in 11 I guess it will be early 2019, the tentative release date for 12, when it will be practical to revisit the question of FreeBSD on the RPi3.

FreeBSD release cycles vary.
