It looks like pkg mirrors are not allowing indexes on folders anymore.
For example https://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:12:amd64/quarterly/ now returns 403/Forbidden.
This is on purpose, the generation of these indexes was causing excessive CPU load on the servers.
The pkg mirrors are not meant to be used in this way.
What were you using the index for?

I used this to find out if the package is ready for the corresponding version of the port.
Maybe there is another way?
pkg upgrade -n will show you
this information is also available on freshports:
Ок. I understood. Thanks for the clarification.
Is there any way to list all available binary packages for different ABIs?
E.g. see what's available for FreeBSD:13:powerpc64 from an amd64 machine?

In fact, that was precisely the reason when I needed to access those URLs from the browser: to find a package for alien architecture/branch. It would be really nice if pkg(8) could do that (e.g. allow search and download, but refuse to install unless forced).
