I am upgrading to more recent version of macOS (Sierra), so 
after that I am migrating macports using instructions in

However, when I cannot complete the step of uninstalling old 

# port -f uninstall installed
Warning: Failed to open Portfile from registry for alpine @2.20_0.
Error: port uninstall failed: Registry error: Invalid version '2.20_0.' specified for alpine. Please specify a version as recorded in the port registry.

This was a local port of alpine, I tried to put information that 
this is my own revision in the version number, and at the time I 
built / installed it this version number was accepted. The 
Portfile is definitely still there, not missing.

Any thought?
