But your server is running and other services are ok?

Is your kernel still 7.1 ?
I guess it should be. (uname -a)

Looks like either a newer version of freebsd-update already got installed
which is not compatible with some library or the other way around.
I have never gone from 7.1 to 8.1 directly and I haven't lost my connection
during the updates.

Does freebsd-update rollback work?
I guess maybe not but it's worth a try.

Then it's time to dive into the exact workings of freebsd-update when going
from 7.1 to 8.1 I guess.

BTW Yes I mean sysutils/screen
