His PACKAGESITE environment variable is set to a wrong location. I think that he needs to set it using something like
setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-4-stable/All
Thanks Kent, but it didn't work. Setting it made it search in ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/All. I eventually found that it's PKG_SITES that needs setting (and you don't include 'All') after trawling through pkgtools.conf. Unfortunately it's not documented in the portupgrade manpage.
Anyway, I've got it all working now - thanks for the push in the right direction, and thanks Phil too for the input.
or his favorite mirror, as all one line. and then run portupgrade -PPa. It defaults to the 4.9 release packages and they never change. I have only used PACKAGESITE once and that was to update KDE. The sites were so busy that my computer would build it almost as fast as I could download it.
