macOS High Sierra Problems

General Issues

First of all, please read Migration.

Updating MacPorts Base

MacPorts must be re-installed in a version configured for macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

Ensure you have Xcode 9.0 or greater installed and selected (e.g. sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/, and that you have the command line tools installed (xcode-select --install). You also have to agree to the license by running sudo xcodebuild -license.

As of Xcode 9.x, the -license option might not be sufficient alone, and following command might be required to agree to the license: sudo xcodebuild -runFirstLaunch
