Wow, I literally just finished fixing this with Lumina

I did a pkg info | more and noticed that, even though I upgraded the qt5
[meta] version, there are some qt5 libraries that do not, automatically,
upgrade.  I then did a manual pkg upgrade qt5-[package]  I know i had to do
dbus, x11extras, svg, and a number of others.  I just kept at it, until
they were all upgraded to the same release.

For Lumina, specifically,  I had to do a pkg delete of all of the packages
for it (such as lumina-core, etc)  I then did a pkg clean -a (not sure if
that was necessary) and pkg install.  Finally, it was back to normal.

I hope this helps.  Good Luck
