I am assuming you have the latest version of portmanager and an updated
ports tree. Try just running portmanager in a generic fashion; i.e.:

        portmanager -u -l -p -y

See if that corrects the problem. Also, can you run it as root rather
than using sudo? I have no idea if that would make any difference;
however, I never use sudo when running portmanager myself.

Also, you probably have portsclean installed. Clean out
your /usr/ports/distfiles directory and then run:

        portsclean -CLP

Prior to running portmanger. It cannot hurt and it might fix something.

You might also consider doing a deinstall/reinstall of portmanger if
you feel the program might have gotten damaged.
