You mis-typed the command... Its

 > sudo port -d rev -upgrade

i.e. rev-upgrade is one word.

I have no idea what the plist file you sent is for ?

That is not what Ryan asked for. He asked if you had configured your 
local installation to use a custom local Portfiles. i.e. have you 
*changed* /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf ??

( At this point though, given all the problems you have its going to be 
very hard I would say for anyway to understand what you have, and have 
not done to your system, as part of the upgrade process, so probably the 
simplest approach is to wipe out the macports installation and start 
afresh. Just my view, others might disagree. )
