I followed the instructions. Just re-ran the sync command no errors. My computer returned all 0's i.e.
Total number of ports parsed: 0
Ports successfully parsed: 0

Here is what I got from terminal:
sudo port -v selfupdate
----> Updating MacPorts base sources using rsync
rsync: failed to connect to rsync.macports.org: Operation timed out (60)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-42/rsync/clientserver.c(105)
shell command "/usr/bin/rsync -rtzv --delete-after rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/base.tar /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs" returned error 10
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: port selfupdate failed: Error synchronizing MacPorts sources: shell command failed (see log for details)
And when I ran
sudo port -d selfupdate
The same as above with-
DEBUG: MacPorts sources location: /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs
DEBUG: Error synchronizing MacPorts sources: shell command failed (see log for details) while executing "macports::selfupdate [array get global_options] base_updated"
Where can I find the log file on my computer?

I believe I followed the instructions to the tea.

I have used the search command like
Port search recoll with no luck
