I have just installed FreeBSD 12.1 and want to give it a try. I used qemu. When I types pkg, it started normal bootstrapping. After downloading, it says No trusted fingerprint found matching package's certificate. I am confused because there isn't any error during the installation process. Any ideas? If needed, I will post the log.

At the time of 2020/01/04 10:19:45, I reopened this question.

Now I have seen this question and this. None of them can help me. I tried by building pkg in port: /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg, but it couldn't build. Gives error: <jemalloc>: jemalloc_arena.c:647: Failed assertion: "nstime_compare(&decay->epoch, &time) <= 0

  • Use -f option , pkg bootstrap -f , pkg update -f... – GAD3R Dec 28 '19 at 12:12

  • Hello. I still can't resolve this issue. I tried to build the applications I need from ports, but all the ports is depended on ports-mgmt/pkg which fails to build. Which means, I can't install, or even get any sources/binaries. Do you recommend me to report this problem on FreeBSD forum / their support? Please reply. – Chrimpyslime Feb 19 at 1:49

Solved by myself! Changed one line of /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf to follow: fingerprint: "/dev/null" and it went great!
