Does running ``# portupgrade -arRp '' prompt for options or updates everything without prompts?

Have run the suggested commands

# portsnap fetch extract
# portsnap fetch install

the ports tree is updated.  Now portmaster was not installed, installed it
# cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/
# make install clean

now I am running

/usr/local/sbin/portmaster -L --index-only | egrep 'total
install|versions|New version'

and see the packages that need updating, but to update I am running:

# portmaster -na > /tmp/portorder.txt

and will get back after this is done to see how to proceed.
