I’v tried to upgrade my Freebsd 10.3 droplet to Freebsd 11, but after the last reboot (after installing the new kernel, rebuilding all ports and deleting the old system libraries using freebsd-update) the droplet doesn’t boot. Instead I get the error message “/etc/rc: ERROR: USAGE: load_rc_config name”, and I cannot for the life of me figure out why this is happening.
I’d rather not have to put up at new droplet with Freebsd 11 as it would take much longer to get the new droplet configured the way my current one is than to upgrade.
