Plex Not Downloading Artwork

For some reason my Plex Server will not download the movie artwork for a movie I added. I checked all the Databases online and the movie is there and shows the info however the server will not grab it. I also can't upload the picture manually. It gives the error "there was an error uploading this artwork".

FreeNAS Plex Version

    I reinstalled Plex and it fixed the issue.

    I am still not able to make plexmediaserver-plexpass for freebsd to grab artwork. Tried reinstalling and nothing. On docker works fine!

    On other systems this is commonly a permissions issue but on FreeBSD this is commonly a lack of a loopback interface in the jail. Usually you have to create the jail with VIMAGE for several aspect of the Plex Media Server to work correctly.
