Trouble getting Portfiles and updating my system after "successful installation"

I installed MacPorts successfully and got the following Terminal statement:
Congratulations, you have successfully installed the MacPorts system. To
get the Portfiles and update the system, add /opt/local/bin to your PATH
sudo port -v selfupdate
I have tried many Terminal commands using the PATH environment variable
which gives me the following error:
Bad : modifier in $ (~).
and many other similar forms of error.
It is only the first step mentioned above that I can't quite figure out -
to get the Portfiles.
I should also mention that I have downloaded MacPorts before a few years
ago. If this is what's causing me to not get these Portfiles I would
appreciate any information on how to deal with this problem.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
