I just tried to do a portsnap fetch update to check for updates for 
flash, the 1 thing I maintain using ports, pkg for everything else. I 
get the following:

[root at kabini1, /etc, 8:10:30am] 353 % portsnap fetch update
Looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 7 mirrors found.
Fetching snapshot tag from your-org.portsnap.freebsd.org... done.

such file or directory
metadata is corrupt.

[root at kabini1, /etc, 8:12:39am] 355 %

Probably something simple, pilot error, etc. I use ports for flash but 
am not an expert with it. Any clues how to proceed here ? TIA & have a 
good one.
