PKG_UPDATE(1)           FreeBSD General Commands Manual          PKG_UPDATE(1)

NAME
     pkg_update -- update an installed package

SYNOPSIS
     pkg_update [-nv] [-r oldpkg] newpkg.tgz

DESCRIPTION
     The pkg_update command is used to update an already installed package.
     It takes care of propagating dependencies from the replaced versions to
     the newly installed version.  It would normally be used to replace all
     currently installed versions of a package with a more current version.
     It can also be used to revert a package to an older version by specifying
     the version to be replaced with the -r option.

     The following options are available:

     -n      Print the actions to be performed but don't actually do them.

     -r oldpkg
             Replace the specified version of the package.  Normally
             pkg_update will replace all installed versions of a package with
             the new version.  This isn't always desirable since for some
             packages it is expected that multiple versions will be installed
             at the same time.  This option allows a specific version to be
             replaced.

     -v      Enable verbose output.
