Decided to give the upgrade to -current another shot.
This is the process I followed:
-Updated mirror to point to a -current server, commenting back out the previous 13.37 mirror.
-"pkgtool update", pulled down new information correctly.
-"pkgtool install-new", everything installed correctly.
*Now pkgtool started acting up.
Any attempt at passing command line parameter to pkgtool now fails. Nothing happens if I try any of the following commands...no error message, timeouts or anything.
"pkgtool upgrade-all", "pkgtool update", "pkgtool clean-system"....even "pkgtool --help" doesnt do anything.
Although running "pkgtool" by itself does open up the package manager, which seems to work just fine. I even downloaded pkgtools from a mirror and reinstalled with installpkg, but still same behavior.
Rebooting also does not help, pkgtool still acting the same. Any suggestions for where I should look for clues? I've got a clonezilla backup from yesterday, but this is my second time getting this same problem with pkgtool.
