           Summary: pkg upgrade prompts to install if package is missing

This behavior is not what is outlined in the manpage. This has changed in the
last few months (or longer, not sure exactly) as I used to be able to invoke
this via Ansible and the pkg upgrade process would skip hosts where the package
was not installed. Now, if adding "-y" all hosts will receive the new package
even if it previously did not exist.

pkg-upgrade(8)"... Moreover, pkg upgrade will not install new packages, except
as required to fulfil dependencies of the packages listed on the command
