Default pkgdb errors

I've been trying to use pkgdb to update my packages, but can't get on...

max@~: sudo pkgdb -F
--->  Checking the package registry database
Stale origin: 'devel/linux-glib2': perhaps moved or obsoleted.
-> The port 'devel/linux-glib2' was removed on 2009-01-21 because:
        "Removed since the port is incorporated into all linux base ports"
-> Hint:  linux-glib2-2.6.6_1 is required by the following package(s):
-> Hint: checking for overwritten files...
 -> No files installed by linux-glib2-2.6.6_1 have been overwritten by other packages.
Deinstall linux-glib2-2.6.6_1 ? [no] y
--->  Deinstalling 'linux-glib2-2.6.6_1'
pkg_delete: package 'linux-glib2-2.6.6_1' is required by these other packages
and may not be deinstalled:
** Listing the failed packages (-:ignored / *:skipped / !:failed)
        ! linux-glib2-2.6.6_1   (pkg_delete failed)
Command failed [exit code 1]: /usr/local/sbin/pkg_deinstall linux-glib2-2.6.6_1
How can I get pkgdb to resolve this issue.

You could try to delete 'linux-glib2' package manually.
pkg_delete -f should do it.
Then run pkgdb -F again until tings are ok.
