Hello. Today I ran into a problem when trying to update the ports tree.
I executed the following command:
# portsnap fetch
However I got this message:
Looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 6 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from your-org.portsnap.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching snapshot tag from your-org.portsnap.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching snapshot metadata... done.

Extracting snapshot... tar: Unrecognized archive format
tar: snap: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
Looking in the Internet I found that deleting the directory
/var/db/portsnap/files should help, however it didn't work, also found
that deleting the portsnap directory should do the trick, but this
didn't work either I keep getting the same error message. The tar
command is functioning correctly (I tested it).
