> "the message": you mean the message "see log for details"? That's a generic error printed any time any shell command files, so it can't be more specific. We could print an additional message with the log location; we do that for port installs already.

Printing the location would be nice.  I have tried and failed to find
such a log in the past.  Perhaps it really does not exist, or it ends
up being deleted somehow at the end of the selfupdate process.
