Dear folks,

I am encountering an error when updating ports using portmaster.

A message appears that the port is already installed and does not
update, I have switched to pkgng tools and encountered this before but
it fixed itself on two other machines.

===>  Building package for pcre-8.34_1
Creating package /usr/ports/devel/pcre/work/pkg/pcre-8.34_1.tbz
Registering depends:.
Creating bzip'd tar ball in '/usr/ports/devel/pcre/work/pkg/pcre-8.34_1.tbz'
===>  Installing for pcre-8.34_1
===>  Checking if devel/pcre already installed
===>   pcre-8.34_1 is already installed
      You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
      by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
      If you really wish to overwrite the old port of devel/pcre
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** [check-already-installed] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/pcre.
*** [install] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/pcre.

Now I hope that the issue fixes itself, but it is not doing so for the
past two weeks.  Is there a nice fix so I can overcome these

Best Regards && Thanks in Advance
