portaudit works with the old still pkg_install database -- on a
pkgngized system you should use 'pkg audit' instead.  Does essentially
the same job, but using /var/db/pkg/local.sqlite rather than all those
old sub-directories for individual ports under /var/db/pkg.

If this is something in your daily/weekly/monthly e-mails, there is a
directly equivalent periodic script using 'pkg audit' which you can turn
on, and turn off the portaudit one.  Or just 'pkg delete portaudit'
because it doesn't really do anything useful on a pkgngized system.
