Hello Rayan,

as often you are completely right,
thanks for giving your experience.

all is fine now.

in fact i forgot to delete Applications/macports/*
so, dbus,  and other  osfts  was  orphan, and not registered.

Thanks again.

Often, the cause is that you have not updated the command line tools to a version that is compatible with your OS. When in doubt, download the correct command line tools manually and reinstall them.
