Failure to upgrade outdated

I had not changed anything in my Macports installation for a long time. Then I got to messing around with AquaTerm and something in the linking stage kept crashing, so naturally I decided to freshen up my MacPorts set-up. Here’s what happened. I have no idea what to do.

macOS 10.11.6

Thanks for any help.
