Yes, that should work. During the upgrade process there may be some
transient format generation failures, but they shouldn't stop the
upgrade, and once the upgrade finishes the errors should be resolved
and you should have a working installation.

If `port upgrade texlive*` or `port upgrade outdated` isn't working for
you, can you provide a log?
