Summary0006016: ./unreal upgrade not working on FreeBSD and some suggestions
DescriptionHello guys,

On FreeBSD, when I run "./unrealircd upgrade", returns the error:

$ ./unrealircd upgrade
./unrealircd: /home/unrealircd/unrealircd/bin/unrealircd-upgrade-script: not found

I debug the script shell "unrealircd-upgrade-script" and found the problem.
The shebang #!/bin/bash doesn't exist on FreeBSD at this location.

On FreeBSD, bash (when installed) is located at /usr/local/bin/bash

If bash is really needed, I suggest to use dynamic path for shebang on the first line:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

Another suggestion, BASH have a global variable for OS Detection ($OSTYPE)
So, I changed few lines of "unrealircd-upgrade-script", using "wget" only on Linux systems, and using "fetch" (default) on FreeBSD.

    58 #FreeBSD uses fetch to retrieve a file
    59 if [[ "$OSTYPE" != "freebsd"* ]] ; then
    60 if ! wget --help 1>/dev/null 2>&1 ; then
    67 fi
    68 fi

    82 # Download the install script
    83 if [[ "$OSTYPE" == "freebsd"* ]] ; then
    84 fetch -o unrealircd-upgrade-script.stage2 "$UNREALVER" || fail "Could not download online installer"
    85 fetch -o unrealircd-upgrade-script.stage2.asc "" || fail "Could not download online installer signature"
    86 else
    87 wget -O unrealircd-upgrade-script.stage2 "$UNREALVER" || fail "Could not download online installer"
    88 wget -O unrealircd-upgrade-script.stage2.asc "" || fail "Could not download online installer signature"
    89 fi

And the help installation of gpg, that on FreeBSD is at gnupg package:

   110 if [[ "$OSTYPE" == "freebsd"* ]] ; then
   111 echo "On FreeBSD consider running 'sudo pkg install gnupg'"
   112 else
   113 echo "On Linux consider running 'sudo apt install gpg' or 'yum install gnupg2'"
   114 fi

If suggestions are appreciated, the complete modified "unrealircd-upgrade-script" is at pastebin:

The same could be replicated on "unrealircd-upgrade-script.stage2", using shebang #!/usr/bin/env bash to avoid errors, and using wget (on linux) or fetch (on FreeBSD).
