I’d check .bashrc or .profile to see if Homebrew somehow messed with your path. 

For me, port points to /opt/local/bin/port. Does that exist?

Once the Homebrew finished its installation process I quit the Terminal and open it again to verify if MacPorts was ok by typing on the command line `$ port version`. The output was as follows: `-bash: port: command not found`.

I'm wondering if I can just install MacPorts again with the macOS package installer or if I have to do/try something else before installing MacPorts again.
