Default System Update GUI
When trying to upgrade from PC-BSD 9 BETA1 to BETA1.5 using System-Updater GUI i get an error:

“Failed to install:System Update to 9.0-BETA1.5 Possible causes: Dropped internet connection or low disk space.”

I seem to have plenty of space on disk (27GB Free) and the network is working fine for other system and pinging google on the PC-BSD host is 100% received and latency ranging from 6 to 7 ms.

However, I have noticed after retrying over and over (about 50 times now) i have reached about 44% downloaded!!!! Sometimes, when retrying, it will never make it to the download process ending at "System Update: System Upgrade: 9.0-BETA1.5 (2011-08-18)"

System Specs:
Host OS: Fedora 15 x86_64 with Virtualbox-4.1.2
Guest OS: PC-BSD9.0BETA1 with a ports collection install of virtualbox-ose-additions

Default System Update GUI
The upgrade functionality is only available for PCBSD version 9.0-Beta1 and newer. This is a recent development to allow the user to upgrade to the latest version of the PCBSD operating system without requiring the user to re-install the entire system while preserving all user settings and data and PBI's (not installed ports however).
As such, there is *NO* upgrade functionality within the PCBSD 8.x series, so you will have to download the .iso image of your choice for the PCBSD 9.0-BETA1.5 version and reload your entire system.
Reminder: be sure to back up your *entire* home directory in order to preserve your data!
