Is it just me or is there currently some major packages currently
missing from/not building in the LATEST package repository?

One specific example would be firefox.

laptop:/root/bin %uname -a
FreeBSD laptop 12.4-RELEASE-p9 FreeBSD 12.4-RELEASE-p9 GENERIC amd64
laptop:/root/bin %pkg search firefox
firefox-121.0,2 Web browser based on the browser portion of Mozilla
firefox-esr-115.6.0,1 Web browser based on the browser portion of Mozilla
p5-Firefox-Marionette-1.40 Automate the Firefox browser with the Marionette protocol
laptop:/root/bin %

But, on 13.2...

testbox:/root/bin %uname -a
FreeBSD testbox.asgard.uk 13.2-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 13.2-RELEASE-p8 GENERIC amd64
testbox:/root/bin %pkg search firefox
testbox:/root/bin %

Other notabley large packages "missing" includes qt5-webkit, gimp-app and
many others.

Any pointers appreciated as I'd rather not upgrade other PCs by
resorting to compiling very large ports :-)

Thanks,

Interesting. pkg search with the latest pkg repository for 14.0 lists:

firefox-120.0.1_1,2 [not 121.0]
firefox-esr-115.5.0_2,1 [not 115.6]
p5-Firefox-Marionette-1.40

so not as up-to-date as 12.4.

Don't know about currently, but a month ago the 13.2 pkg repository had
firefox and firefox-esr (and IDK about the other one), so 13.2 *used* to
have them.

If you're not in a hurry, and since it's a holiday period, maybe wait
for the next repository update and see if they reappear?

Thanks, yeah, I'll just wait :-)

With 12.3 going EOL this New Year, I thought I'd take the opportunity
of the holiday break to do the upgrades. I've seen the odd packages
be missing for a while due to the package cluster build failing until
they get fixed, but i don't recall seeing so much missing all at the
same time so was concerned that it might be something at my end, maybe
the major version upgrade not quite going to plan this time.

Luckily my "testbox" really only gets used remotely for doing video
transcoding so missing packages isn't a big deal (I saved a list of
what got removed with by the pkg upgrade part of the update to 13.2)
and my file server has very few packages on it anyway and nothing was
missing in that case :-)

I'll leave my daily driver till the New Year :-)

Wonder if that system has the repositories set wrong. I get:

meet/EC2# uname -a
FreeBSD meet.tavi.cx 13.2-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 13.2-RELEASE-p8 GENERIC amd64
meet/EC2# pkg search firefox
firefox-121.0,2 Web browser based on the browser portion of

firefox-esr-115.6.0,1 Web browser based on the browser portion of
Mozilla
p5-Firefox-Marionette-1.40 Automate the Firefox browser with the
Marionette protocol

Looking at firefox on freshports[0], firefox seems to be having some
issues. It's present on the quarterly branch for amd64 for all
releases, but not on latest. Going to the bug tracker, there is a
ticket open stating that firefox currently isn't building[1].

Personally, I usually stick to quarterly instead of latest for
stability reasons unless I really need a new version of some software
and can't wait until the next quarterly build.

An update for 14.0 just came out. It now has:
firefox-121.0,2
firefox-esr-115.6.0,1
p5-Firefox-Marionette-1.40
so it's caught up to 12.4. :)

I'm correcting the header for those who care
(you got to the typo before I did).

31.2 shouldn't even branch for the next 30 years...
