Default Difficulty setting package pathway

Greetings Friends!

I have OpenBSD 6.1 installed on my Lenovo T410 Thinkpad. Wireless networking is up and running. I am trying to set my install pathway in /etc/installurl.

Bellow is my /etc/installurl

https://ftp3.usa.openbsd.org/pub/Ope...ackages/amd64/

When I attempt to invoke pkg_add -v anypackage I get: Can't find anypackage.

I know I'm missing something. Thanks for any and all help!

Just wondering: since installurl(5) indicates https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD as an example, your URL could need to be written as
https://ftp3.usa.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD. Both mirrors follow the same layout.

Thanks for your quick reply! Edited my /etc/installurl as per your example and all is well. I was confused by the man for /etc/installurl; I incorrectly assumed that I needed to put in a more detailed package pathway.
I appreciate your help, mate!

That was just an example of any type of package that I would try and install. After I changed the /etc/installurl as per the man page everything works now.

Ok sorry about that, I also noticed you got the answer, and it was posted at the same
time I posted, so then I deleted my post, but any way, the important thing is you
got it working.
Sorry
