vitaly-zdanevich,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Its important you perform the steps in the order given. Ech step can depend on the previous steps being completed successfully.
Your
Code:
eselect profile list: Failed to get a list of valid profiles
is only possible after, installing the stage3, installing the portage snapshot and being in the chroot.

The stage3 installs the code you need.
The snapshot installs the portage repo, including the profiles.
If you are not in the chroot, eselect won't work for several reasons.

You have either skipped a step or a previous step failed.

According to Handbook I did emerge --sync before:
Code:

>>> Syncing repository 'gentoo' into '/var/db/repos/gentoo'...
 * Using keys from /usr/share/openpgp-keys/gentoo-release.asc
 * Refreshing keys via WKD ...                                                                     [ !! ]
 * Refreshing keys from keyserver hkps://keys.gentoo.org ...OpenPGP keyring refresh failed:
gpg: refreshing 4 keys from hkps://keys.gentoo.org

!!! Manifest verification impossible due to keyring problem:

Action: sync for repo: gentoo, returned code = 1

 * An update to portage is available. It is _highly_ recommended
 * that you update portage now, before any other packages are updated.

 * To update portage, run 'emerge --oneshot portage' now.



/usr/portage is not exists, /var/db/repos/gentoo is empty.

Before I downloaded stage3, checked sha512, unpacked to previously formatted hard drive root partition, chrooted.

No, I thought that cp --dereference /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/ did not matter... who cares, DNS, to win a few milliseconds?.. It was my mistake :oops: sorry, thank you for help.
