Macport rsync error

Problem:

After doing:

port selfupdate

I got the following error:

Error: Synchronization of the local ports tree failed doing rsync
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: port selfupdate failed: Couldn't sync the
ports tree: Synchronization of 1 source(s) failed

Solution:

In most cases, the cause seems to be some connection issue (proxy, e.g.). In my case was that I forgot to execute the command as root >.<, that is

sudo port selfupdate
