Try to run
    port provides /opt/local/lib/apache2/modules/
to see which port is broken.
You need to update that port. (We should set up a database of all the
files provided by the individual packages at some point.)

Based on the logs it might be php72-apache2handler. Try
    sudo port upgrade php72-apache2handler

But generally you need to run
    sudo port selfupdate
    sudo port upgrade outdated
and this should upgrade all ports.
You were just a bit unlucky that one of the ports was broken and that
broke the rest of the update process.

The error when building gtk-doc says
    /opt/local/bin/ranlib: object: .libs/libtester.a(tester.o)
malformed object (unknown load command 1)
but I have no clue what that means.

According to
the build did succeed on 10.14 in August 2019 and other tickets listed in
seem unrelated.

You may not need gtk-doc for now, so if you update all other ports
your system should at least be functional again, and in parallel you
can file a ticket and we can try to diagnose what could go wrong. Run
    port outdated
to see what else needs updating. (You could run "sudo port upgrade
outdated and not gtk-doc", and hope that no other ports depends on it,
so that update would continue.)
