I'm seeing the same thing on this machine:
1>uname -a
FreeBSD kolia.dunhurtin.net 8.4-STABLE FreeBSD 8.4-STABLE #0 r283273: 
Fri May 22 07:43:52 EDT 2015 
root@kolia.dunhurtin.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/KOLIA  i386

I did a pkg delete on libreoffice but it didn't help - it went on to 
issue the same message regarding octave which I also deleted (had been 
meaning to anyway).  When I had begun the first round of updating I 
noticed pkg update itself to the current version.

I also ran pkg updating that day to see if there were any upgrade 
instructions I'd missed - didn't notice any though
