Created attachment 224731 [details]
A patch for updating operation text.

In "For portmaster users" on "20210425",

  # REINSTALL="$(pkg info -o py37-\* | awk '{printf "%s ", $2}')"
  # pkg delete -f py37-\*

'portmaster $REBUILD' causes a updating error like devel/scons.

To fix this issue, specify '\*py37\*' instead of 'py37-\*'.

And I confirmed some packages that causes this issue:

    UPDATING: Adjust Python 3.7 -> 3.8 instructions for portmaster

    Some ports, which use PYTHON_PKGNAMESUFFIX for their package name (e.g.
    devel/scons), must also be taken into account when portmaster is used.

Thank you for the report and the given details!  I had already been able to reproduce these issues in the past few days, but had not yet had the time to update the UPDATING instructions.

I'll leave this bug report open for a few days as a reference.
Comment 4 Kai Knoblich freebsd_committer 2021-08-30 09:19:34 UTC
The overall experience gained with the Python 3.7 to 3.8 upgrade were added in the FreeBSD wiki (see URL field).  It's planned to improve the UPDATING instructions in order to make the next Python upgrade better.
