Thanks.  That led to the solution.  In fact, FreeBSD.conf was
unchanged since November 2019; the issue was that I originally
installed -STABLE, and then upgraded to -CURRENT some months ago.  pkg
appears only to have noticed this after the beginning of the quarter.

Is there any warning about this somewhere?  I didn't see one.  It
seems strange that the upgrade to -CURRENT went seamlessly, but that
pkg failed as a result with messages that aren't immediately obvious.
