Thanks for the tips.  I might give your suggestions a try.

The original installation was FreeBSD 10.x along with the
corresponding version of Mate.  I updated everything periodically and
there didn't seem to be any problems.  A fresh installation from
scratch, however, might have incompatibilities.

Meanwhile, I'm running my machine using the backup system on the other HD.
