As I said before, I was processing UPDATING and as a result, I did run
1) Update the origin to point to 5.16:
pkg set -o lang/perl5.12:lang/perl5.16
2) Upgrade perl and all dependencies:
pkg install -Rf lang/perl5.16
But I still have perl5.14, and "pkg upgrade" does not work. This was my

Okay I was not clear. postgresql93-client is installed indeed. But
postgresql90-client is not:
root at backup:/usr/ports # pkg info | grep postgresql
postgresql93-client-9.3.4 PostgreSQL database (client)
postgresql93-server-9.3.4 The most advanced open-source database
How can there be a conflict with postgresql90-client? It could be
postgresql91-client or postgresql92-client the same way, because none of
them are installed. What makes pkg think that there is a conflict? Is it
some kind of dependency problem, where it thinks another package
requires postgresql90-client to be installed, but in reality
postgresql93-client should be it?
I have already tried this:
pkg set -o databases/postgresql90-client:databases/postgresql93-client
pkg set -o databases/postgresql90-server:databases/postgresql93-server
But " pkg upgrade" it still does not work and I'm still getting warning

Okay, I was dumb. BTW the problem was not with redirection alone but the
question ("Proceed with upgrading packages [y/N]:") combined with
redirection. I have found the magical -y switch - this is clearly my
fault that I don't know too much about pkgng. So after using
pkg upgrade |& more
I have found that *there is no error message at all*. There are only
WARNING messages about conflicts.
Then why it is not doing the upgrade?
