Ensure Synth’s flavour index is up to date. Or, remove it, typically
/var/cache/synth/LiveSystem-index, and run
synth status to recreate it. Otherwise, you’ll end up with some strange whining:
www/serf scan aborted because dependency could not be located. /usr/local/bin/scons-3.8:devel/scons@py38 (required dependency of www/serf) does not exist. Scan of local/[REDACTED]-localbase failed, it will not be considered. Scanning existing packages. Queue integrity lost! (Synth must exit)
Here are three handy
vi(1) commands when editing local metaports:
:g/@py37/s//@py38/ :g/-py37/s//-py38/ :g/py37-/s//py38-/
Maybe the above could be simplified to
without any ill side effects.
In any case, it’s recommended to scrutinise the output of
cvs diff before committing.
When updating your packages it may be necessary to run this command sequence at least twice in a row.
pkg update -f && pkg upgrade && pkg autoremove
