I use portmanger all the time. It is simply telling you that you have
ports or dependencies that need to be updated and or corrected. Nothing
is going to get broken.

Run: portmanager -u -f -y -l

It will rebuild and update all dependencies and update your any out of
date ports. There will be a log file created also --
/var/log/portmanger.log that will be available for your perusal.

It is imperative that you update your ports collections just prior to
actually running portmanger to insure you do in fact get the latest
