Mac Mavericks install using MacPorts fails

I successfully installed MacPorts in order to be able to use the command "sudo port install ImageMagick" suggested at

However, on opening Terminal and running that command, I get the message, "Error: Port ImageMagick not found"

What have I missed?

Thanks, ---TAD.

Code: Select all

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port list imagemagick
sudo port info imagemagick
(Strictly speaking, `sudo` is only required for the first command, and isn't required for the last two commands -- but I want to see if it is in your $PATH.)
