I used steps 1 through 4 myself this morning before I read your post.
Right now 'portupgrade' is running and it seems to be running correctly.

I am not sure exactly what 'portindex' and 'portindexdb' do, since there
is no manual for them. I assume that there are no command line switches

Anyway, that is just my 2 cents.
