Problem #1: For the past 9 hours I haven’t been able to access mail.yahoo.com. POP3 mail fetch suddenly stopped working. Web access was very slow, then started to get some kind of TLS error messages, and now doesn’t work at all. Ping is very slow with 94% packet loss. I can access the site without problems via a smartphone, and can ping without loss from an ssh session on an external host.
Problem #2: I’ve been reading the blogs about the 141 update and some DNS/TLS changes. So I need to update from 139 to 141? (I’ve been too busy to do so, but am forced now). I’ve never updated ipfire before, should be simple. IPFire tab, shows “Core-Update – 2.23-x86_64 – Release: 139->141” but is grayed-out. Clickws download icon anyway, spins for several minutes, goes back to System->Home tab. Still shows " IPFire 2.23 (x86_64) - Core Update 139" and has notice “There is an core-update from 139 to 141 available.” Did System->Shutdown Reboot. Machine rebooted. No change.
I guess there’s something simple that I’m not understanding. Can IPFire update itself online or do I have to download 141, burn onto media and do a full/fresh manual re-install? Web page at https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/ipfire/pakfire is not helping – I neither have nor want Addons. Any help appreciated. Please respond here if so – I can’t access my email.
