Unless you have a specific overriding reason to do -Uu you might want to
try -uF instead. It's what I use and it's always worked. In fact, this is
what I do to see if I need an upgrade:

csup -L 2 ports && portsdb -uF && pkgdb -u && portversion

But since I have never used portsnap don't really know anything about it.
