Default [Resolved]FreeBSD security update would not be installed.
If I click install selected updates, It would check update again, and never install.
KDE 4.10.1, PC-BSD 9.1 Release.

It seems I'm not the only one having problems with my 64 bit system. It is annoying; but I'll leave it in the hands of the testers and developers. The problem will, I suspect, be fixed shortly.

Default Checked another way to update
I tried the command line and all is up to date, so I suspect it might be the gui for the update manager.

If you want to try the command line, type the following in a terminal:

su root
pc-updatemanager check

This is probably one of the many issues of going to a rolling-release - but don't quote me on that.

Can you post back the output of these commands?

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
# freebsd-update fetch

I'm wondering if some file isn't getting downloaded / installed properly yet

It seems there is a problem with linker.hints. It doesn't seem to be installed. I think this is a FreeBSD problem and not a PC-BSD as I get a similiar problem in my FreeBSD vm.

This is what I get after doing freebsd-update fetch for the second time.

Code:
The following files will be removed as part of updating to 9.1-RELEASE-p3:
/boot/kernel/linker.hints
A same problem has been discussed in FreeBSD forum for a previous release

http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread...t=linker.hints

Although I don't really understand what they are talking about. At the moment I am just ignoring it.

Can someone explain it in simple terms? Thanks

I typed the commands you listed kmoore134 and I agree with blazingice3; it is the linker.hints that is causing the issue. Here's the output I got:

freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 4 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE from update5.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.

The following files will be added as part of updating to 9.1-RELEASE-p3:
/usr/src/crypto/openssl/ssl/s3_cbc.c

The following files will be updated as part of updating to 9.1-RELEASE-p3:
/boot/kernel/linker.hints

freebsd-update install

Just to give a bit more information. I have another vm machine where I have installed FreeBSD. For this one I used the FreeBSD ISO, not the PC-BSD one. This is a 32 bit system. I get no problems installing the update in this one.

I am not sure if it is because it's 32 bit as Darky says, or because I haven't used the PC-BSD iso. The other two installations which are 64 bit (PC-BSD & FreeBSD) installed from PC-BSD iso show the same problem.
