You could remove the file manualy and start over. It in
/usr/port/distfiles/. If you like you could also fetch the remaining
manualy. You should read man fetch on how to do this.

Its more likly that the download was aborted.

Marty if you still like to update here are two links you should read:

Updating FreeBSD Sources for the OS and the ports:

Compiling FreeBSD sources to update the OS:

Updating ports you have now could be best done with portsupgrade. To
install this do:
cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portsupgrade
make install && make clean

The update all your ports do:
portupgrade -fa (this can take as much as days)
