Hi and Welcome to the forums.

There could be several problems.
1) If you are in X windows does your default terminal allow a loginShell?
2) Is your package path set correctly for your shell?
3) Network setup

I only occasionally try NetBSD but when I have pkgin has worked well. It's use is described in these links: Howto pkgin and pkgin.net
