If you've already have a backup /var/db/pkg using "pkgdb -F" before you
portupgrade all the port, maybe you can cover the new pkg folder in /var/db
with the old one you saved and portupgrade again. I am not sure is it a right
workaround, but it worked for me when I encountered the similar problem.
And there is one more thing need to be mentioned. You should not run two or
more portupgrade commands at the same time.
