I think you did mention it. I was suggesting you run it again, in case somehow the server files were in a weird state the last time you selfupdated. There was some intermittent network problem affecting the server that generates the ports.tar file a few days ago, and again today; although I thought our rsync updates happened pretty much atomically, maybe it was possible for a set of files to be published briefly that was not correct.
