What does it mean when the message ---> skipping [portname] because it is held by user (specify -f to force)
Does said port appear in the HOLD_PKGS array within pkgtools.conf? From that file: # HOLD_PKGS: array # # This is a list of ports you don't want portupgrade(1) to upgrade, # portversion(1) to suggest upgrading, or pkgdb(1) to fix. # You can use wildcards ("ports glob" and "pkgname glob"). # -f/--force with each command will override the held status.
and when & why should -f be specify?
When you want to force the upgrade of a package even though you've "held" it in pkgtools.conf.
