Default Update fails confusing message
Failed to install:System Update to 9.1-RC3 Failed to install update! Please check your network connection, or change mirror servers in the System Manager.

I've attended to the mirror. There is nothing wrong with my network connection.

What next?

I had the same problem updating to RC3 on my netbook. Keep retrying and it will resume from where it left off.

Default It could be something else
The Graphical PCBSD has a pretty generic message. I also had the same problem, but discovered the true issue when I ran the update from command line:

start here (likely requires root or sudo):
$/> pc-updatemanager

I believe that you need to run check (pc-updatemanager --check) which will tell you what upgrade command to run with an absolute path.)
When I ran the actual update via command line I found out that I had insufficient disk space, and had to delete a few superfluous jails.

I think that the command is the correct one but the dashes don't belong - i.e. it should be
Code:
pc-updatemanager check
