It's not necessarily that bad.  As the portsdb(1) manual says:

                    Note: the ports database file is automatically updated if
                    it is not up-to-date when looked up, so manual updating is
                    not mandatory.

No, the errors wouldn't necessarily correspond; they're built by
fairly different methods.  I don't recall any operations that require
you to have both; the standard ports tools only use INDEX, and the
portupgrade-related tools only use INDEX.db.  [as far as I remember...]

When I'm having trouble building an INDEX, I run "make describe" and
see where it fails; that usually gives me the information I need to
fix it.

Good luck.
