Default File not found after upgrade

I've successfully upgrade my system using sysupgrade -s.

Now, every package I try to install gives me:

doas pkg_add -vv emacs
https://cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/6.8packages/amd64/: no such dir
Can't find emacs

I haven't touched /etc/installurl which is the only thing I can think of.
Is there somewhere else I should be looking?

Thank you

Let me play Captain Obvious.

OpenBSD 6.8 hasn't been released yet, there are no packages on the mirrors at the moment as package building hasn't started yet or has started but hasn't finished yet. There's also a slash missing in the url, but that might be a typo on your side? It's irrelevant anyway due to the first issue.

EDIT:

I just checked the mirrors, the release sets aren't out either. That means you've installed a snapshot. I think you just have to add the option
Code:
-D snap
to your pkg_add line in that case.

Twice each year there is a window of several days to several weeks where the next release is being prepared. We are in one of these windows right now. During this period, -current is labelled as if it is the next release. The result of this is that the sysupgrade(8) utility requires the -s option in order to upgrade from one -current snapshot to another, and pkg_add(1) requires -D snap in order to update snapshot packages.

Even though it happens twice a year, it catches many -current snapshot users by surprise.

And ... 6.8-release has been tagged, -current is once again "-current." This release preparation window this time was 6 days: September 25 to September 30. Source:http://cvsweb.openbsd.org/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh

Now, the Project will work on building the releases, building packages, preparing the new Upgrade Guide, preparing updates for the FAQ, and making other website changes in preparation for the release distribution and announcement.
