All Plugin Installs Fail (network problems)

      Description

      I can't install plugins at all, and I am fairly sure it's a network error. They stall out our fail after numerous retries.

      On my FreeBSD laptops, I have to run pkg install -y pkgname over and over and over, sometimes I have to cont-c it when it stalls, and sometimes it just crashes out, and it's because it takes several attempts with my flaky internet connection to download packages.

      On FreeNAS, since the plugins are in jails installed in the web interface, I'm unsure how to "fix" (retry several times) this problem. So far, I've had it fail, then tried again, and it errors because it's on top of an existing jail, or I stop the jail, remove the jail, start over hoping it might work if I get lucky (but haven't been lucky yet).

      Is there a workaround? Can I "get in there" and try to do all the package installations by hand in command line? I know the work-around (just keep restarting the pkg install command over and over) for my laptops, but is there a way to do this in the FreeNAS jail?
