You could try the following; 1) Update your ports tree. 2) Remove: /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db 3) Run: /usr/local/sbin/pkgdb -Ffuv 4: Run: /usr/local/sbin/portsdb -fUu 4) Run: /usr/sbin/pkg_version -vIL= Now run portupgrade as you normally do and see what transpires. If that still fails, install /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmanager Then run it as thus: portmanager -u -l -y -p I have had great success in getting updates completed successfully with portmanager when portupgrade and portmaster both crapped out. I would suggest that you consider deleting the contents of the /usr/ports/distfiles prior to running any of the above port utility programs. -- Jerry ges...@yahoo.com There is no comfort without pain; thus we define salvation through suffering.
