I have reinstall manually portupgrade and ruby* (using make install clean), rebuild INDEX with "portsdb -Uu" and "pkgdb -fu" or "pkgdb -F". Even went to the extent of blowing my /usr/ports and cvsup all over again. However, : 1. my /usr/ports/INDEX has the following as its first few lines: *** Error code 1||||||| Stop in /usr/ports/databases.||||||| Stop in /usr/ports.||||||
2. portsdb -Uu reports hundred of make_index error.
So, as it is - i cant install new stuff via portupgrade "portinstall -Rv <package>". I seem to be able to maintain it though i.e. "portupgrade -Rv <package>". Anyone can shed light on this matter?
I think it might be related to my very very outdated /var/db/pkg/*/CONTENT .. but its just a guess . I cant blow it and start all over again, right? Too risky, this is a production machine.
Right; don't do that.
You're having trouble with building the INDEX file in the first place. Wait a while, re-cvsup, and re-run the "portsdb -Uu".
Have been cvsup-ing for couple of days with the same results. /usr/ports/INDEX is updated correctly, but will have errors once I run portsdb -Uu. As of yesterday, I am skipping the "portsdb -Uu" step after cvsup-ing ports-all. This is NOT a correct behaviour for using portugrade, right? But I would imagine this would be a better alternative that having a /usr/ports/INDEX that has errors in it. (/usr/ports/INDEX.db would correspondingly have errors too?)
