#1096: Warden jail "Check for updates"

 Today I was playing with jails in Warden and I noticed one thing that
 would be nice if it behaved differently.
 I don't know why, but my /etc/resolv.conf got improper value and I was not
 aware that internet access did not work from jail. I clicked "Check for
 updates" inside warden (on running jail), and after some time I got well
 known "your system is fully updated" message. After that I tried to run
 "portsnap fetch" and at this point started to suspect something is wrong
 with my network, because host could not be reached. I tried to ping, but
 with no reply so I looked up my resolv.conf which had bogus entry (instead
 of it had, have no idea why this happened). I
 edited it and ping started to get reply. Then I went back to "Check for
 updates" and there was "base update" available.
 My point here is that first reply from jail update was misleading,
 shouldn't there be some kind of error that update system can't be reached
 or something like that? If I get reply that jail is perfectly fine and
 updated, but on the other hand there is update availabe, shouldn't system
 inform me, that something is wrong? I'm just thinking from "rookie"
 perspective ;)
