The NetBSD Foundation, Inc.
System: NetBSD 8.99.25 NetBSD 8.99.25 (NIGHT-OWL) #622: Tue Sep 11 09:37:35 CEST 2018 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64

While working on some sysinst changes I ran into this failure when trying
to set up binary pkgs. I am aware that there are no pkgs for amd64/8.99.25
available - but I find this mode of failure ... a bit cryptic.

Can we change pkg_add to just say that the directory is missing or
something more clear?

Screen looks like this:

     Status: Command failed
    Command: pkg_add
     Hit enter to continue
pkg_add: Can't process
/8.99.25/All/pkgin*: Transient resolver failure
pkg_add: no pkg found for '
4/8.99.25/All/pkgin', sorry.
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed


Run sysinst from -current and try to set up binary pkgs.
