This is taken from the Forum (@EvertonBt?)

I cannot download any packages from using Safari (I can do it using another web browser). But this is an easy issue to avoid.

The installation for user sounds working nicely - Iraf seems to be working too, but it hasn't the external packages installed for default. So I tried to follow the instructions, using the ./configure into the extern directory, to work with the packages I need, and the results are always:

sudo ./configure
Initializing repository data ....
Cannot download repository manifest file, quitting.
Creating system makefile ....
Setup Complete.
cat: .repo_pkgs: No such file or directory

   To install packages, use 'ls' to list the currently available
   packages from the IRAF repository.  For each package you wish
   to install, use the command:

     make <pkg>

   The package will be loaded dynamically the next time you start
   the CL session.

   Use the commmands:

     make update       # to update pkgs to the latest repository version
     make check        # to list available updates
     make clean        # to delete installed all packages
     make init         # restore to pre-configure state
     make <pkg>        # to force a re-install of named <pkg>

For some reason, i couldn't find, it cannot connect to the repositories, like Safari couldn't. May be it is a correlated issue.
Another thing is that the repositories seems to be working too.
It started since may computer updated to High Sierra.

Someone has any idea how I could solve this.



The problem is a missing binary /usr/bin/ftp in High Sierra.

This issue is to ensure it will be fixed in the code.
