install (which uses , I wanted to add KDE on the system.

Using the PC-BSD Control panel - > system manager -> system packages (tab)
--> Desktops -> KDE -> apply.
It returned the error message that meta-pkg manager returned an error.

The referenced logfile /tmp/.pc-metapkgmanager.log  had the message:
Pending Meta-Package changes: 15
ERROR: the pkg location
/9.1-RC3/amd64/netinstall/metapackages/pcbsd/packages/ does not exist.

Suggestions on how to locate the metapackages?
