freebsd-questions is a better (well, the only) forum for asking
questions. I'm forwarding it there for you.
You shouldn't need to subscribe to the list; you should be CC'ed
on any replies.
The only real advice I might give is that you should definitely
read UPDATING before running portupgrade -a. Sorry I can't help
more, but I'm a newbie :).
