Unable to update FreeNAS, 11.1 - 11.X

I have a thread over on their forums as well, I haven't got much help since the last time this happened.

Currently running OK on ProxMox 5.3 and FreeNas 11.1. I upgraded previously to 11.2, and it wouldn't boot. I tried to upgrade again today to 11.3, same errors.

Here are the screens I was able to capture with VNC.



Here is my config file for the VM.

/etc/pve/qemu-server# cat 103.conf
boot: dcn
bootdisk: scsi0
cores: 10
ide2: none,media=cdrom
memory: 32768
name: FreeNAS
net0: virtio=F2:68:56:7B:9A:2C,bridge=vmbr0
numa: 0
ostype: l26
scsi0: local-lvm:vm-101-disk-0,size=16G
scsi1: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EMAZ-XXXX,iothread=1,size=7816839793K
scsi2: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EMAZ-XXXX,iothread=1,size=7816839793K
scsi3: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EMAZ-XXX,iothread=1,size=7816839793K
scsi4: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EMAZ-XXX,iothread=1,size=7816839793K
scsi5: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EMAZ-XXX,iothread=1,size=7816839793K
scsi6: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EMAZ-XXX,iothread=1,size=7816839793K
scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci
smbios1: uuid=69a8662f-4a4c-43fb-8d6d-43d3062d1931
sockets: 1
startup: order=100,up=120

Any idea on what would be causing the issue simply for the upgrade? I was able to revert back (fresh reinstall) on the local VM with 11.1, and import the volume. Luckily no data was at risk!
