Tip: Fix freebsd-update problems

I tried to update my desktop from FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE to 7.1-RC1 however I came across an error along the lines of "No mirrors remaining, giving up" .

Here's how to fix the issue:

% su
# env UNAME_r=7.1-PRERELEASE freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.1-RC1

Substitute the current and target versions according to you particular system and you should be able to update the system as usual.
