Update...
So I reverted back to 37 and it failed at upgrading config 39. So after it updated not FPPD still not running. I Ran the manual update again and again it failed at updating config 39 and still no FPPD. I then ran apt --fix-broken install and then ran manual install on FPP again and success. The FPPD is up and running.

Most probably the Pi/BBB does not have access to the internet.

Unknown means it is not finding / connecting to Github where the files are located.

Check your internet connectivity. Make sure you have a good DNS entry (I use 8.8.8.8 )

SOLVED I am trying a clean install of 2.5 so I can upgrade to 2.6. I am having a problem of it not loading. Gets about 1/2 way through & says
"Hold until boot process finishes up"
That is as far as it goes. Any idea what is wrong?

It was dumb _ _ _ me that made the error. I forgot to plug in the Eithernet cable all is good now

I'm trying to upgrade to 2.6, but I get the error that it cannot connect to Github to pull the download. Do I need to be on a wired ethernet connection or should it work on wireless?

This is a somewhat common problem - you cant get to the internet from your pi. Quick fix is to switch your wifi fpp settings back to dhcp - reboot - then try again.
Take note of your settings prior to flipping it back to dhcp.

Yes.  My Pis are never wired anymore even at initial setup (thanks to the default hotspot now).

Make sure you have both DNS populated.  I usually put 8.8.8.8 (google) as my secondary.

Looks like going to DHCP nd the wired connection worked.

Is there an image file for 2.6 in the future?
When in doubt, empty the magazine!
Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.
