adam:ONE® installation fails with error

It is possible that running the adam:ONE® installation command on pfSense® could look like this:

[2.6.0-RELEASE][]/root: curl -sS | sh -s /lib/ version FBSD_1.7 required by /usr/local/sbin/pkg not found
Using channel [stable] /lib/ version FBSD_1.7 required by /usr/local/sbin/pkg not found
Failed to install adamone-core-4.9.1_1

Solution 1

First upgrade your pfSense® to the latest version. In the above example, Community Edition 2.7.0 is out and the System → Update is set to “Latest Stable Version”.

After upgrading to the latest, try the adam:ONE® installation again.

Solution 2

If you’re not ready to perform the pfSense upgrade but you’re still on immediate prior version, you can choose the Update Settings tab and select PREVIOUS version and then select Save:

From an ssh session, we’re going to follow the step taken from Netgate:

  • Ensure that the package database directory exists:
    /bin/mkdir -p /var/db/pkg/ /root/var/db/pkg/

  • Force an update of the package repository data:
    /usr/local/sbin/pkg-static update -f

  • Force a reinstall of the pfSense® software base package and kernel:
    /usr/local/sbin/pkg-static install -yf pkg pfSense pfSense-kernel-pfSense

Try installing/re-installing/upgrading adam:ONE® when steps above are complete.
