Hi Kris,

I am also experiencing difficulties to update to PCBSD 9.0-BETA1.5:

"Update Failed!

Failed to install: System Update to 9.0-BETA1.5
Possible causes: Dropped internet connection or low disk space."

I think I may have found a fix to the updating program as well. It seems if

I applied this change and I am still getting the same error message using
the Update Manager GUI or 'pc-updatemanager install release-9.0-BETA1.5'
command executed as root.
