As I have been bit by this issue (see https://trac.macports.org/ticket/61453):
It looks like one cannot rely on the command line tools' status.
% xcode-select --install
xcode-select: error: command line tools are already installed, use "Software Update" to install updates
I had manually upgraded Xcode, rebooted, and only then launched the Big
Sur upgrade. Afterwards, the command line tools were broken, the status
message shown above did not match reality (which sort of fits how the
days since November 3 have been going).
Sorry Apple, that upgrade did not run as smoothly as it should have. :-/
