Hi Peter, Ryan and Chris

Thanks for your help.

By 'port -u uninstall'?

Follow

<https://guide.macports.org/chunked/installing.macports.uninstalling.html>

Once you have done that, just follow the usual instructions to install MacPorts from scratch.

I am inclined to just start afresh, but I am very interested in all of your 
suggestions, since I have another iMac to go (from 2014), that has been 
upgraded to macOS 10.14 with the old port files on it (I never upgraded ports 
since all was working fine, until the recent upgrde to 10.14).

Whenever you upgrade your OS it is *mandatory* that you follow the migration guide

<https://trac.macports.org/wiki/Migration>

Not following that, precisely (which yes means uninstalling all ports and reinstalling them once upgraded), is a very good way to end up with the troubles you are having here.

Another bit of advice - *never* updating your ports after you install them is also not at all recommended, as it is also a good way to end up with troubles as when you do the updates are a lot bigger and more problematic the longer the time period since the last update. I recommend periodically running

> sudo port sync
> sudo port upgrade outdated

and

> sudo port selfupdate

to keep your ports in good health.

Chris


Thanks in advance,
Hans

First things first: this shows that gcc9 was already successfully installed 
before you ran this command.

You can always run 'port rev-upgrade' again to fix errors.
The following ports will be rebuilt:
  cmake @3.15.5
  readline @8.0.000
  gdbm @1.18.1
  llvm-8.0 @8.0.1
Continue? [Y/n]: y


After any port install or upgrade, MacPorts checks all installed ports for linking 
errors. It found some on your system. We would need to see the output of "sudo port 
-d rev-upgrade" to know specifically what problems were found with those ports.


Warning: No port perl5.8 found in the index.

perl5.8 was removed a long time ago. The current version is perl5.30. Nothing 
in MacPorts should be referencing perl5.8 anymore. (I found one port that was; 
I filed a ticket: https://trac.macports.org/ticket/59600)

Do you perhaps have any local Portfiles (check your 
/opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf file) that might be very old and out of 
date?

I see below that you did run this command. Good.

Whatever the problem with cmake and readline was, MacPorts successfully rebuilt 
them so they are no longer broken.

We would need to see the contents of those two logfiles to know why this failed 
and what to do about it.


Was it a mistake to upgrade to macOS 1014 for this MacBook?

As far as MacPorts goes, it should work fine.
