If you are getting the following error messages after upgrading FreeBSD you have lib problem which might be caused by a failure to install the pkg installer.

Error include the below

 

Shared object “libarchive.so.8” not found, required by “pkg”


Shared object “libarchive.so.7” not found, required by “pkg”


Shared object “libarchive.so.6” not found, required by “pkg


Shared object “libarchive.so.5” not found, required by “pkg"


Shared object “libssl.so.5” not found, required by “pkg”


Shared object “libssl.so.6” not found, required by “pkg"


Shared object “libssl.so.7” not found, required by “pkg”


Shared object “libssl.so.8” not found, required by “pkg”

 

which means the updates didn't work and you should do the following below


# pkg-static bootstrap -f

pkg(8) is already installed. Forcing reinstallation through pkg(7).
The package management tool is not yet installed on your system.
Do you want to fetch and install it now? [y/N]:y

Hit y to install pkg.

Other options are bootstrapping pkg. 

Note: Make sure you have an Internet connection.

Deinstall the pkg package and install new version


# pkg-static delete -f pkg

Show new version


# pkg -v

The package management tool is not yet installed on your system.

Bootstrapping pkg from pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/FreeBSD:11:amd64/quarterly, please wait...

It's now a great idea to update all the packages in FreeBSD since somewhere it failed the update during the initial upgrade process at some point.

You need to fetch updates before you can update packages


# freebsd-update fetch

Update all packages


# freebsd-update install

If you get a message "No updates are available to install" you are set.
