eix-sync error, not a git packfile

Question

Hello,

 

After running eix-sync today (Aug 14) I get this error message:

 

* Running emerge --sync

The list of pack files looks like this:

 

skeerly@mybox /usr/portage/.git/objects/pack $ ls -lt

Fetch returns an empty FETCH_HEAD file.

What can I do to get git working again? Can I remove the offending pack file?

 

Thanks for any advice.

I had the same idea :D

 

But, 

the problem could also be solved by
# emerge --regen
or it is only for Gentoo and not for Funtoo ?
 
Thx for explanations :)
