Do you want to use binary packages or build those from the pkgsrc tree?
If you want binary you may have to check online whether there are builds for the latest release yet, OR NOT.
To me, it looks like NOT only the MAJOR release version matters, but ALSO THE MINOR. For example
mail/alpine did not run on NetBSD 7.1.2 although it was built for 7.0 (
libgssapi.so.10 not found).
uname -rpm export PKG_PATH="http://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/amd64/8.0/All/" #export PKG_PATH="ftp://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/amd64/8.0/All/" #export PASSIVE_FTP=yes
and use it,
pkg_add lftp wget
cd /usr/ ls -lhF | grep pkgsrc wget http://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/current/pkgsrc.tar.gz progress -zf pkgsrc.tar.gz tar xf -
In case the tree is too recent compared to your system,
unset PKG_PATH cd /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/ ./bootstrap
