Problem installing macports

My attempts to install Macports on a 10.10.5 Yosemite have been
unsuccessful so far. I have tried installation both through the graphic
interface and the source file. Using the pkg file, the installation seems
to fail at the validation step. When running the source, I can configure
and make the file but running "sudo make install" gives me the following
message towards the end:

===> making install in tests

make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.

[ ! -f "/opt/local/etc/macports/mp_version" ] || rm -vf

/usr/bin/install -c -d -o root -g admin -m 0755 "/opt/local/share/macports/"

/usr/bin/install -c -o root -g admin -m 444 setupenv.bash

/usr/bin/install -c -o root -g admin -m 444 ./macports-pubkey.pem

./src/upgrade_sources_conf_default.tcl "/opt/local"

couldn't create error file for command: no such file or directory

    while executing

"open "|$mktemp -t macports_sources_upgrade.XXXXXXXXXX" r"

    invoked from within

"set mktempChannel [open "|$mktemp -t macports_sources_upgrade.XXXXXXXXXX"

    (file "./src/upgrade_sources_conf_default.tcl" line 33)
make: *** [install] Error 1

Xcode and command line tools are up to date. Would you please help me
resolve this issue.
