File probably got corrupted during download. It can happen. Just remove it and fetch again.

Thank for your response.

To verify, I would like compare the reel cheksum of the file vs my download. How to I obtain the original file's checksum ?

I'm seeing the same issue, also on 11.1.

Code:
rm -rf /var/db/portsnap/*
That doesn't seem to have any affect.

There's another thread that popped up on this forum recently as well:

Here's some output from my terminal:

Strange, this issue comes on same file for several users on several servers.

Code:
snap/7004d8ade7378bfbcbc00521e88d067bc386baafae08ef4a40252977ad7a9eb6.gz

My solution:
Fetch always failed, so I deleted the data base at: rm -rf /var/db/portsnap/*

Then I did a checkout with subversion:
svn checkout https://svn.FreeBSD.org/ports/head /usr/ports


Finally, doing portsnap fetch said everything was up to date and I ran portsnap extract for the heck of it, and now all seems to be good. I noticed portsnap fetch was grabbing a 35MB file each time, but after doing my svn method it turned out being 76MB as I remember. Hopefully that works for others.

Thank you for the reply stratacast1 .

I was going to do your solution, but I decided to give it one more shot today and it looks like it's working now. I didn't change anything on my end.

Use SVN or portsnap(8). Not both. They're going to interfere with each other because they have different techniques of keeping track of changes.

I found that to be the case when whereis wasn't working. I just thought it a temporary solution to hopefully prime my local pull of the ports tree. Perhaps it was just a coincidence that svn worked and later portsnap did and that there was just a bad snapshot?

Yesterday, the cmd portsnap fetch was working correctly. I confirm, the size of snap file is 76MB.

If anyone have an explanation for this issue ? Other that the download :) Thank to share this.

If I run in trouble with the ports, it do every time this and it works
(I think https://forums.freebsd.org/members/1677/ has give me the tip for some years)

Delete all and Create new Ports
-------------------------------
config file is: /etc/portsnap.conf
rm /var/db/portsnap/tag
rm -rf /var/db/portsnap/files
rm -rf /usr/ports/*
cd /usr/ports
portsnap fetch
portsnap extract update

Whether /var is too small to hold the database you can set
in /etc/portsnap.conf
# default: WORKDIR=/var/db/portsnap
#changed in (i.e.)
WORKDIR=/tmp/db/portsnap
mv /var/db/portsnap /tmp/db/portsnap
ln -s /tmp/db/portsnap /var/db/portsnap

To Upgrading Ports
------------------

To update an already installed Ports Collection, use portsnap update
portsnap update

or later on:
portsnap fetch update extract

Sometimes when I have a long time (about month) not installing some from the ports and anything goes wrong I do first these steps above.

portsnap fetch update extract
This is pointless. The update will update the ports tree and the extract removes the whole tree and does a full extract. To update use portsnap fetch update. To extract a brand new ports tree from scratch use portsnap fetch extract.
