As I've posted before, the problem is not always as simple as it's made
out to be.  When I upgraded to 4.8-STABLE, I still got that error.  It
was because of a corrupt directory in /var/pkg/db, which was causing
pkg_info -O to abort before finishing.  Running the failing "pkg_info -O
whatever" command by hand made the problem visible, and I deleted the
bad directory.
