... between instructions 2.13 and 2.14?

It's been quite a while since I last installed Gentoo but I'm sure I had the same issue before. During the install everything goes as planned, but when I get to 2.15 and enter 'emerge-webrsync' it errors out with:

!!! Section 'gentoo' in repos.conf refers to repository without repository name set in '/usr/portage/profiles/repo_name'
emerge-webrsync: error: Repository 'gentoo' not found

Now as I'm following the Handbook instructions 'to the letter' if I'm having problems installing others must be too. Mind you it could just be me being dumb 8O

If anyone can point me to what I need to do to install Gentoo I'd appreciate it.

My best
Robbie.

Seems that might be broken. You can instead get portage-latest from http://distfiles.gentoo.org/snapshots/ in your preferred format and unpack it such that its contents land in /usr/portage/.

I have seen this problem as well. I would also recommend getting the most recent snapshot. There really is no downside to doing it this way, just make sure you sync afterwards.

Which profile are you using?
Code:
eselect profile list

I came across this when I selected a hardened profile by mistake, but didn't follow through with it because i wasn't targetting a hardened platform. If this is a genuine issue with hardened, then perhaps a bug should be filed against it. That being said, manually getting a portage snapshot and putting it in place should give you a workaround.
Code:
(chroot) livecd / # tar xvjf portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /usr/

gentoo docs and handbook are migrating. So troubles with docs could be expected until it's finish.

This is a regression that was introduced with Portage 2.2.1 that was fixed in Portage 2.2.7, but unfortunately, stage3 building has been broken since before Portage 2.2.7 was stabilized, so the latest stage3 still use Portage 2.2.1 which is still broken. It's been a few months now. I'm sure there's a good reason. But there's nothing missing from the documents, it's just that the files you are downloading are broken. You aren't doing anything wrong.

i installed today, and got the error and ctrl + c canceled, then re emerge-webrsync got the errors again... waited... and as if there was no problem.

i set profile after emerge-webrsync & when i emerge-webrsync no more errors.

"broken" is a bit harsh, more like a false positive on a non-issue.

my original work around for this was emerge --sync
