This is a known issue and will be fixed in 1.26.1, which will be released shortly.

Ok Thanks!

It weird though, I can install the FreeBSD toolchain from macOS. Maybe because it doesn’t try to download rust-docs?

The docs seems to have gone missing again in 1.27.1:

:; rustup update stable
info: syncing channel updates for 'stable-x86_64-unknown-freebsd'
info: latest update on 2018-07-10, rust version 1.27.1 (5f2b325f6 2018-07-07)
error: component 'rust-docs' for 'x86_64-unknown-freebsd' is unavailable for download

Also, the workaround of simply removing the documentation component does not seem to be availiable:

:; rustup component remove --toolchain stable rust-docs
error: component 'rust-docs' for target 'x86_64-unknown-freebsd' is required for toolchain 'stable-x86_64-unknown-freebsd' and cannot be removed

(As I do my programming on another host (running Linux) and just want to compile and run some of my programs also on FreeBSD, removing the documentation component would be a perfectly fine workaround for me.)
