when I click on the upgrade button in nothing happens. Is there any command i can run instead.
Log on to your console via ssh and type
pakfire has various options (install remove update upgrade list status)
Try, pakfire update … does it bring server-list.db and packages_list.db ?
Can you ping outside (eg. ping 220.127.116.11).

What DNS are you using?
[root@ipfire ~]# ping pakfire.ipfire.org
PING fw01.ipfire.org (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data.

I suggest you reboot and fix DNS so the Status: says, Working instead of Broken.
Then, you should be able to ping by name and update/upgrade.
I restarted the system but that did not solve the issue. Do you suggest me to manually reinstall the whole OS and restore the configuration from backup.
Could you please help me to fix the DNS issue , if its a simpler problem.
Set your DNS configuration to UDP, Standard, define 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 as your DNS entries.
click “Check DNS Servers” button. If that does not say, Working, restore config from backup.
Added new DNS entry of Google, getting the same error.
IPfire is not able to communicate with DNS server, rest of the systems in the network are able to connect.
I even added pakfire.ipfire.org in /etc/hosts , still the same error.
I think unbound is having a fit …
do you get errors?
is unbound running now?
tcp 0 0 localhost:8953 *:* LISTEN 8218/unbound tcp 0 0 *:domain *:* LISTEN 8218/unbound
I did base on another suggestion in forum
unbound-anchor -a /var/lib/unbound/root.key
Now ipfire able to resolve pakfire.ipfire.org. Running the upgrade from GUI.
thank you very much Paul for all the help extended. I appreciate your time.
