PC-BSD Update Center got confused from applying updates

PC-BSD Update Center was used to update Firefox installed from AppCafe?. The following steps happened:

  1. The update process started normally by downloading the update.
  2. It was printed that the update is going to be applied.
  3. The update claimed it ended in error.
  4. Re-trying to update ends in same error.
  5. However, the Firefox did get updated by it's own version number. From 26 to 27.
  6. PC-BSD Update Center claims the system is fully updated. There were other updates too, that were not even started to be applied.

Next, the AppCafe? is informing of another update now to Thunderbird. This same update seems to be available from PC-BSD update center. So trying to apply the update from PC-BSD Update Center

Following things happen:

  1. PC-BSD Update Center now again, sees the update.
  2. Attempt to apply the update to thunderbird ends in error: "Can't find installed pbi (firefox-26.0,1-amd64)

A follow up information. Today there was a new update to Firefox from PBI. From version 27.0_1 to 27.0_1,1. This time the update worked perfectly well through PC-BSD Update Center. IT failed with the patch, but informed it will do full file update and there were no problems and Firefox is working correctly.

As a side note, updating through AppCafe? worked perfectly well for the program that was not possible to update through PC-BSD Update Center yesterday.

The Update Center utility is now depreciated.
The AppCafe? should be used for all PBI/Package operations now.
