. . . I'll check into this. Can you try running "pbreg get
/PC-BSD/Version" and give me result? Does it print anything? If not,
try running this as

 # pbreg set /PC-BSD/Version 8.1-RC1

Ian Robinson says:

On my 8.1-RC1 system, the "PCBSD Update Manager" is working, at least
insofar as updating PBIs.  However (unlike krzysiek) when I tested
with the "pbreg get" function, it returned "8.1-BETA1."  That is
surprising because this was a "fresh install" of RC1.  After I issued
the suggested "pbreg set" function, it returned 8.1-RC1.  Here is a
transcript of the session:
