Hi Drew,

Try portupgrade and specify the origin using the new path and the name 
of the installed portupgrade package, e.g.:

portupgrade -f -o ports-mgmt/portupgrade portupgrade-2.0.1_1,1

You can get the exact name of the installed portupgrade package by 
running the following:

pkg_info | grep portupgrade

I hope this helps!  All the best.
