I hope you mean /opt/local; installing MacPorts in /usr/local is not supported.

Please remove the wget distfile with the incorrect checksum:

sudo port clean --all wget

Then try again:

sudo port install wget

If it still fails, send us the output showing what mirror the distfile got downloaded from; Re-read the FAQ for more:


You could also check the distfile that got downloaded: is it a valid compressed tarfile? Or is it perhaps an HTML file telling you something? (If so, what?) The distfile is located in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/wget for your inspection.
