Maybe this is a bug, should I report it?

Show us the output that demonstrates this problem.

My first guess is that it's not portupgrade that's doing it, but that
some port you're upgrading now lists gpg2 as a dependency instead of
gpg, which causes the attempted installation.

But I'm just speculating without more details.
