@evilham Interesting! Have you thought about an option that perform the update/upgrade inside a boot environment that you have mounted somewhere?
Here is my proof of concept updating from source:
I used it for more than one year without any issue.
The script was a followup of this discussion:
@Hukadan I... had not, but that sounds quite smart! It could do with one reboot less for patch-level upgrades, though I'd still be more comfortable with the 2 reboot cycles when there are ABI changes because of ports that might need that.
Still, interesting :-D thank you for the pointer!
