    Good article, only thing is missing is the last two steps:

    – Reinstall all packages/ports
    – Run ‘freebsd-update install’ after that

    See https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/updating-upgrading-freebsdupdate.html#freebsdupdate-portsrebuild

    After upgrade i did this:
    pkg-static install -f pkg
    pkg update
    pkg upgrade

  3. Just want to point out, need package reinstall. Otherwise services might break after reboot.

    pkg upgrade -f

    if you have for example 10.3-STABLE and have error
    after
    freebsd-update upgrade -r 11.3-RELEASE

    src component not installed, skipped
    Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors… 3 mirrors found.
    Fetching metadata signature for 10.3-STABLE from update1.freebsd.org… failed.
    Fetching metadata signature for 10.3-STABLE from update2.freebsd.org… failed.
    Fetching metadata signature for 10.3-STABLE from update4.freebsd.org… failed.

    need
    setenv UNAME_r “10.3-RELEASE”
    then
    freebsd-update upgrade -r 11.3-RELEASE
