I was trying to update all my packages via pkg_rolling-replace
-rsux sudo and this failed with:

===> Deinstalling for png-1.2.19
Running /usr/sbin/pkg_delete -K /var/db/pkg  png-1.2.18
=> Required installed package digest>=20010302: digest-20070803 found
=> Required installed package checkperms>=1.1: checkperms-1.7 found
=> Fixing @pkgdep entries in dependent packages.
mv: rename /storage/pkgsrc-obj/graphics/png/work/.replace-+REQUIRED_BY
to /var/db/pkg/png-1.2.19/+REQUIRED_BY: No such file or directory *** Error
code 1

png is now removed, I'm using latest remove and pkg_install from:

$ pkg_add -V

Any idea what's wrong?
