            Bug ID: 255967
           Summary: ports-mgmt/pkg: pkg upgrade incorrectly reports "1
                    candidates"
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc
          Assignee: bugs_at_FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: tux2bsd_at_protonmail.com

This is my first bug report but it is 100% verified, I just hope I've specified
the right pkg in the summary...

>From my testing it is independent of architechture (aarch64 vs amd64) or
FreeBSD release (13 vs 12.2).  

Requires a fresh install of FreeBSD, then:

pkg update
pkg upgrade # will report:

Checking for upgrades (1 candidates): 100%
Processing candidates (1 candidates): 100%

This should be 0 candidates.  This incorrect number of candidates is the bug.

pkg install -f pkg  #This work around to get pkg behaving again.

Verification:

Fresh install immediately after pkg is bootstrapped.
