Hi,

I have a Windows 10 PC, and I have two FreeBSD virtual machines running in
the VMware player.  The two VMs have the same network settings, and
internet access works fine on both VMs.  But on one of the two VMs,
'freebsd fetch' never works.

Sometimes it outputs this:

# freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update1.FreeBSD.org mirrors... none found.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-STABLE from update.FreeBSD.org...
invalid signature.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.

Sometimes it outputs this:

# freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 5 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-STABLE from update5.freebsd.org...
failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-STABLE from update6.freebsd.org...
failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-STABLE from update3.freebsd.org...
failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-STABLE from update2.freebsd.org...
failed.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-STABLE from update4.freebsd.org...
failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.

I tried setting ServerName to update1.FreeBSD.org or update2.FreeBSD.org in
/etc/freebsd-update.conf, doesn't work.

I don't know what program is in charge of /etc/resolv.conf, but after
booting up, it always has the same nameservers, from my ISP I guess.  I
tried adding 8.8.8.8 into /etc/resolv.conf, it doesn't work.

With or without 8.8.8.8 in /etc/resolv.conf, "drill update.FreeBSD.org"
always works.

On the other FreeBSD virtual machine, I never had any problem with
freebsd-update fetch/install.

How to debug this issue?


Thanks
Romu
