I get the following error when I run portsnap fetch:


Fetching 14248 new ports or files... /usr/sbin/portsnap: cannot open
d5742d6e9ca3b11450f23606ae6a16b391a12f4c7b2d4fc638513ce34f7c2c25.gz: No
such file or directory

snapshot is corrupt.


A quick search led to a similar problem in the past:

Some files didn't get uploaded from the machine which performs the

portsnap builds to the mirrors due to a network outage (note to

self: I need to handle problems like this better!)


I've manually copied the missing files into the appropriate places

and everything should be working again now.

Is this a similar problem, or do I likely have another issue?
