Years ago, but this change wasn't in the transition to 2.0.0, but in the
2.2.1 -> 2.3.0 transition, which happened 6 months ago.

I don't know where and how the created timestamp is set, but it's not what's
of interest here. The key is `portfiles_update_needed` being present and set
to one, which means the conversion didn't run or successfully finish on your
system. You will have to run it again, e.g. by running
 sudo port -df selfupdate.
If it fails again, you should at least see some error output.
