I also had this issue recently after upgrading one of my servers from
12.0 to 12.1. I did install pkg directly from a repository providing
full url to the package but this bootstrap seems to be very nice

Would that be possible to add this bootstrap hint after upgrade to pkg
help (bootstrap command is not in pkg help) and pkg man? That would
save some time and searching :-)
