For more than a week, "sudo port -d selfupdate" fails to update my  
MacPorts installation. All worked fine a week ago. The command output  

pmmbp:~ pmoura$ sudo port -d selfupdate

I know for a fact that portfiles are update in the lat few days. I've  
no idea why updating is failing your help is appreciated. I'm running  
the latest version of MacOS X (10.4.9) on a MacBook Pro.

All the best,
