Issues using pkg add
Raising this as a bug bug now as more people are reporting this problem.

Having issues using pkg add command, can anyone shed a light on this error "no manifest found"?
root@mythweb:/ # pkg add ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.4-release/multimedia/mythtv-0.26.0.tbzmythtv-0.26.0.tbz 100% 153MB 1.2MB/s 740.4KB/s 02:12
pkg: /tmp/mythtv-0.26.0.tbz.C41AP is not a valid package: no manifest found
It is clear that I did not request the package as detailed above so I am wondering where the mix up is?
Failed to install the following 1 package(s): ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ ports/amd64/packages-8.4-release/multimedia/mythtv-0.26.0.tbz
when I look in /tmp/ I see the package but it's been renamed somehow to
I have tried all 3 commands
and none work, I even printed the responses after the command is executed...
But the old command version of pkg_add -r mythtv worked (until the package was removed from the pkg list) and pkg_add -r ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.4-release/multimedia/mythtv-0.26.0.tbz still works!
I am just trying to use the replacement command set and telling you it does not work in this case.
Whether you want to fix that or not is up to you guys, I'll just carry on using the old version until you remove it in a future build.
