You should be able to upgrade the system by a routine buildworld,

update them piecemeal can lead to misery.

I'm using portupgrade. So I will use the switches force a reinstall
and to act on everything that depends on the reinstalled port (-fr).

That wont do anything useful as there is nothing for the -r to work
with after a base-system upgrade.

The best way to upgrade all ports with portupgrade is to do it by
datestamp like this:

portupgrade -f '<2007-05-18 14:00'

What about:

  portupgrade -afR

Wouldn't that force everything including ports that depend on the one being reinstalled?
