I spoke too soon.  Try #2 crashed with the same error.  Perhaps there is an

@ Kris,

The computer has two IDE hard disks a 40Gb primary and 250 Gb secondary.  I
was upgrading to -RC2 over top of -BETA installed on the 40Gb primary
(ad0s1) whose file system was configured with the default "use entire disk"

FDISK reported:
Geometry:  4865 cyls/255 heads/63 sectors = 78156225 sectors (38162MB)
Offset       Size(ST)        End            Name  PType       Desc
Subtype    Flags
       0        255               254              -        12
unused          0
   255        78164385   78164639    ad0s1    8            freebsd        16
78164640  720            78165359        -      12             unused

the BSD Label Editor reported:

Disk: ad0       Partition name: ad0s1   Free: 10657 blocks (5MB)

Part      Mount          Size Newfs   Part      Mount          Size Newfs

ad0s1b    swap         3070MB SWAP
ad0s1d    <none>       1024MB *
ad0s1e    <none>      32019MB *

Mount command reported:

/dev/label/rootfs0 on / (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/label/var0 on /var (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/label/usr0 on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates)

To summarize, the file system was the "usual" PCBSD 8.0 default.

The attempted upgrade install to -RC2 was over top of that filesystem.

The pc-sysinstall log shows

1.  a long list of errors chflag errors relating to an input/output error re
attempting to modify all of the files in /mnt/usr/ports, and
2.  an error showing that the umount command did not work.

Here is the specific output from the pc-sysinstall.log:

"cleaning old file system"
chflags -R noschg /mnt
chflags: /mnt/usr/ports/<port_dir>/<port_file_name>: Input/output error

    Note:  The last error repeats hundreds of times as it traverses ports
    where <port_dir> is the name of a port (like /usr/ports/www/firefox and
    where <port_file_name> is the name of
    the specific file within the port (like "makefile" or "dist-files").

running:  sh /tmp/.pc-sysintsall/.upgrade-umount
umount: /mnt/usr:  not a file system root directory.
