The failed checksum from server error is very annoying on FreeBSD 10. I fixed this by using the following command.

This updated the package repositories information for FreeBSD 10 and allowed me to install the packages I required. This is a good command to run from time to time that will keep your repository information up to date. Just like running sudo apt-get update on Linux Mint.
