Macports Selfupdate


I am trying to selfupdate my Macports, but I am getting the following message:
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: port selfupdate failed: Error synchronizing MacPorts sources: command execution failed
I checked my /opt/local/bin/macports and the directory does not exist. Instead, it is in /opt/local/var. Could that be the issue?
EDIT:
Running with -dt, I get the following:
[Users/user] > selfupdate
DEBUG: MacPorts sources location: /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/base
---> Updating MacPorts base sources using rsync
rsync: failed to connect to rsync.macports.org: Connection refused (61)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-42/rsync/clientserver.c(105) [receiver=2.6.9]
Command failed: /usr/bin/rsync -rtzv --delete-after rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/base/ /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/base
Exit code: 10
DEBUG: Error synchronizing MacPorts sources: command execution failed
while executing
"macports::selfupdate [array get global_options] base_updated"
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: port selfupdate failed: Error synchronizing MacPorts sources: command execution failed
What is error 61? Any ideas how I can fix that?
I had this same problem recently, and I forgot to run the command under root. If anyone else is having the problem, be sure to run command as so:
sudo port selfupdate
I was behind a firewall. Tried on a different network and it worked.
There is no /opt/local/bin/macports. The executable you need is /opt/local/bin/port. (Port files are in /opt/local/var/..., which is correct.)
Based on the command execution failed:
you might have forgotten to run as root.
port forks the following programs: rsync, tclsh, openssl, tar, chmod, chown.
Are these executable and in the PATH? (Is /opt/local/bin in your PATH as well?)
If that doesn't help, run port with -dt to get all sorts of debug info. That might help with finding the problem. Append the interesting parts to your question, maybe.
I faced the same issue.But I used to this method in the after.
Go to:
$prefix/etc/macports/sources.conf
(my path is like this):
/opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf
comment out the rsync entry, and add a new entry as follows:
#rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports.tar [default]
https://distfiles.macports.org/ports.tar.gz [default]
After that you can run:
sudo port -d sync
It's also explained on MacPorts.com.
Update for Mavericks: to ensure the XCode command line tools are installed, open a terminal and run xcode-select –-install, then follow the instructions in the resulting pop-up window:
accept license
Of course, this is in addition to the other tips such as making sure to run sudo port selfupdate.
If anybody else is having this issue and they've recently updated XCode, the root of my problem was that Command Line Tools had been omitted from the latest build.
Opening XCode and installing Command Line Tools via the XCode preference panel fixed this error being thrown by MacPorts.
If your company block the access via rsync you can use the http tarball. Explained here
Hope this helps.
EDIT: Now prefer to use homebrew
I too had the same error. It is because the network connection is rejected. If you are using University/Company WiFi or public connection, firewall would be refusing the connection.
As you can see from the output of -dt "rsync: failed to connect to rsync.macports.org: Connection refused (61)"
There are workarounds available which are provided on the macports site:
1) Using svn.
2) If svn fails too, you can try using Daily tarball.
You can test the changes by running "sudo port -d sync"
Note: If the https fails, you can replace it with http. But doing so is not recommended, as you will be fetching from insecure connection.
I faced the same issue.
The main problem was my network. Because the NETWORK Port was blocked for;
rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports.tar
Try to use use another network.
for someone who's problem still exists, maybe you've forgot agree the Xcode license:
# sudo xcodebuild license
remember to look through and type 'agree' in the end.
In my case, the problem was internal to Macports! I updated rsync (the one delivered by Apple is old) with Macports and then Macports failed to use it (/opt/local/bin/rsync) but asked instead to use /usr/bin/rsync which does not exist (or has been erased to force using Macports rsync ?). I created a soft link between the two and now it works again.
