Nobody on this issue?
I've seen more people asking about this[1][2] but I couldn't find a solutio=
n.

I made a back up of the /var/db/freebsd-update directory and renamed
the files and merge directories. freebsd-update created them again,
actually downloaded a bunch of files, but I got exactly the same
error. I followed exactly the same procedure (described in the
handbook) to go from 7.1 to 7.2 then to 8.0BETA1 and finally to
8.0BETA2. What is wrong with freebsd-update? If I did something wrong,
how can I roll it back?

Thanks for your time.
