It depends on how there are installed. If they are installed by using
official pakcages or building personal packages with poudriere, then
`pkg upgrade` is worth trying. But you should save list of installed
packages just in case. otherwise (i.e. you used portmaster or simple
`cd /usr/port/category/portname; make insall`) `portmaster -af` may
work fine if you are lucky. But in this case I think saving list of
installed packages, removing all of them and then reinstalling them is
probably the easiest and shortest way as a result.

According to 'Supported FreeBSD releases'
(https://www.freebsd.org/security/#sup), expected EoL of 12.2-RELEASE
is '12.3-RELEASE + 3 months', and that of stable/12 is June 30, 2024.
So at least 12.3-RELEASE will be released. And probably 12.4-RELEASE
will be too.
