Have same problem.

mport - don't see any packages.
mport search - don't give any result
midnightbsd-desktop port also does not exist and it fails to install on initial startup.

I'm a new MidnightBSD user and also tried to install the X.org, but the package was not found.

Just returns this error message:

# mport install xorg
mport: Package xorg not found int the index.


I recently installed MidnightBSD 1.1.

I've got to say this is poor form. I tried this OS (but version 1.0) back in October 2018 and the same thing occurred.

I was just experimenting to see how it was but I can't like you all, get past mport errors.

I'm sorry, but I'm done with this. Good luck to the developers, but I'm not trying this again.

I've tried the 1.0 too in last year and had the same feeling that you. And with this new release I though that probably was working, but seems still the same problem/error.

I'm in the same boat with 1.1. I even installed it again thinking I did something wrong after install, even though I swear I didn't. Same stuff.

I keep getting an error where apparently the database for mport isn't the latest or something.

I only just installed this yesterday and I'm already stuck.

Oddly enough, while I can't install anything else, I am able to install sudo. I can even verify with mport list and it definitely works 'cause I'm able to use it afterward.

I've tried updating the index via the command, but like others have said, I either don't get a response, or I get this error about the mport database being inconsistent with something.

While I definitely think the install was very user-friendly, this kind of bug isn't. I wasn't even sure where to check logs for.

So, now I'm here...
