Problems with pkgng repository - cannot install pkgs because catalog seems to be older than repository

I am having a problem with installing packages with pkgng on FreeBSD  
FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE amd64. For example when I try to install  

1) Search

root at ws1:/home/mpeterma # pkg search thunderbird

2) Install

root at ws1:/home/mpeterma # pkg install thunderbird

The latter cannot find the appropriate package. I just looked at

and found out that Thunderbird is already on version 31.1.0 there.

Is there any way to force pkgng to refresh the catalog?
"pkg update" doesn't do the trick for me.

Thanks in advance & kind regards,
