I just tried to do a 'pkg upgrade -y' from the console CLI as root. I 
redirected all output to a file, which I list below:

[root at kabini1, /etc, 6:40:13pm] 333 % cat LIST.pkg-upgrade.May2015.txt
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...

pkg: cannot solve job using SAT solver

I had cleaned out the /var/db/pkg/ directory of old repo data & meta 
data. How do I work around this ? Is this a problem w/ remote repos, or 
something at my end (possibly including pilot error :-/ ) ? TIA & have a 
nice weekend ....
