correct index link is <a href="/index.html"> yet <a href="/index.html#portfolio"> does not link to <h1 id="portfolio">?

Am I wrong or is the challenge malfunctioning?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Portfolio Page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <img src="../img/logo.png" alt="Site logo">
    <ul>
      <li><a href="/index.html">Home</a></li>
      <li><a href="/index.html#portfolio">Portfolio</a></li>                
    </ul>
    <h1 id="portfolio">My Portfolio</h1>
  </body>
</html>

The instructions say, "Set the "Portfolio" link to navigate to the section of the page with the id portfolio."

And "the page" it is referring to is the current page, not the index page that the other link goes to.

Well, we don't know it's the one at root level, but you have a good point! You might want to submit a bug report to the Support folks about that.

Couldn't hurt, although that last hole you poked in my reasoning could well frame the question as including a test of general reasoning (indeed, I stumbled and now have learned - and I've studied plenty of logic).

Still, not sure if that was the intended or ideal scope of the question!

I tested it, and a relative reference does not pass the validation either. But while it should work, it would involve a page reload where the accepted solution does not. So it might help clarify the task to add something like "... on the current page without reloading." to the instructions.
