I thought this was a one-off problem for chromium, but I now get the error for en_GB-libreoffice too. So obviously there is problem with pkg on this box. I already tried 'pkg update', which returns normally.

Is this using the default pkg configuration?

Try 'pkg update -f' to make sure that your local copy of the package
catalogue is in synch with what is on the repos.



Hi Matthew,

'pkg update -f' did the trick for me. Thanks a lot !
