failed binary version 6.2-6.3 update using freebsd-update.sh



Hello,

It was suggested in ##freebsd that I post this here, rather than in
-questions. So here goes.

I'm following the instructions for "FreeBSD Update" at
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/6.3R/announce.html.

It's giving lots of odd messages, and the folks in the irc channel
said that it's not normal.

When asked, I checked, and I've apparently got sufficient disk space.

I'm hoping someone might have suggestions/insight as to the problem.

So, here's the output of the session,

The following file could not be merged automatically:

Press Enter to edit this file in joe and resolve the conflicts
manually...

I've googled on "cannot open files/.gz", and get only 2 hits. One's
in russian, and the other has no answer. But, this apparently has
been seen elsewhere.

If you need any further info from me, please let me know.
