Solved pkg install xfce not working

This is what I get (as a newbie)

Code:
root@freebsd:~ # pkg install xfce
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
FreeBSD repository is up-to-date.
pkg: No packages available to install matching 'xfce' have been found in the repositories
 
Complicated as I test FreeBSD under Virtualbox.

What Lines are you looking for? I can type them from the VM.

In 10.2 Repo was changed to "querterly". Changed it back to "latest". Now it works as supposed.

Thanks for you efforts.
 
The package name is sometimes slightly different from the port's name. Using the full category/name usually does the trick: pkg install x11-wm/xfce4.
