# freebsd-update upgrade -r 9.1-RELEASE-p2
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE from update5.freebsd.org... 
done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Inspecting system... done.

The following components of FreeBSD seem to be installed:
kernel/generic src/src world/base world/lib32

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:
world/doc world/games

Does this look reasonable (y/n)? y

Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE-p2 from 
update5.freebsd.org... failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE-p2 from 
update4.freebsd.org... failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE-p2 from 
update3.freebsd.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up
--------------------------------------

Where am I going wrong?
