Install/uninstall Direwolf program errors

I am running OS 13.1 on an intel iMac.  I installed the program “Direwolf” using Macports, following the intstruction listed here (  

I was having some problems with Direwolf and realized that between the initial install of Macports and direwolf I had upgraded the OS from 12 to 13 - and error message I got from Macports suggested to run the migration procedure for Macports.  I did that, installing the version for OS 13.  All seemed to go without issue.

I decided to upgrade direwolf with sudo port upgrade direwolf and Macports reports it is not installed.  (But it’s there, as typing direwolf in the terminal starts the program).

Attempted to re-install direwolf - get error “Failed to build direwolf:  command execution failed.

Here is the output of the log file:

:error:build Failed to build direwolf: command execution failed
:debug:build Error code: CHILDSTATUS 24328 2
:debug:build Backtrace: command execution failed
:debug:build     while executing
:debug:build "system {*}$notty {*}$callback {*}$nice $fullcmdstring"
:debug:build     invoked from within
:debug:build "command_exec -callback portprogress::target_progress_callback build"
:debug:build     (procedure "portbuild::build_main" line 8)
:debug:build     invoked from within
:debug:build "$procedure $targetname"
:error:build See /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_science_direwolf/direwolf/main.log for details.

I was unable to find a definition of the CHILDSTATUS 24328 2 error code.  

Questions:   1.  Why does macports not see the earlier installation of Direwolf?

                   2.  What would cause the above error?

                   3.  Under macports, what is the command to remove a program?
