I had the exact same problem upgrading 7.0-RELEASE to 7.1-RELEASE.  It took=
 5 tries to get all the files to download and apply.  Definitely something =
squirrelly there.  Updating to patch levels however works flawlessly.

One question
After the upgrade, the /var/db/freebsd-update was filled with about 500MB o=
f .gz files.  I was wondering if these can be safely deleted?
