If you have an earlier version of db41 installed, then portmaster -af
will try and upgrade it to a later version of the db41 port, with the
observed warning about the port being deprecated.

You need to tell portmaster to replace db41 with db5 --

   portmaster -o db5 db41

and then force reinstall everything that used to depend on db41 but that
now depends on db5 ---

   portmaster -fr db5

before proceeding with trying to update everything else.
