I would fix your basic system, whatever causes you to say:
As usual, portage can't find the ebuilds required and I've been
downloading them manually.
If portage can't download packages then you have a real problem. Others
have suggested you run an emerge sync. After that, try the --fetchonly
option for a simple package and get your downloads to work.
I migrated from 2004.3 a few months ago using the automated upgrade and
I had no problems that I remember.
