The "point" of the whole pkgng system is to shift the update method from
ports (portmaster/portupgrade) to update via binaries. This is because
building binary packages, then updating the the whole system through the
packages is healthier and less error-prone. So to answer your question:
* If you DO NOT plan on building your own packages, should not have switched
to pkgng.
* Since you have switched, you can try to revert to legacy pkg or setup your
package builder system using poudriere (enough examples in internetland for
* Once you have poudriere building your packages, you can then make pkgng
aware of the local repo by setting:
PACKAGESITE=file:/poudriere/data/packages/10amd-default (or whatever your
actual turns out to be)

pkg upgrade should then run smoothly.
