Can I fix this?
Oops, I missed that before. That of course doesn't look right. By the way, I'm also running xfce, but had no issues (last updated from synth 3 days ago or so).
If "pkg upgrade" want to remove those packages, most likely is because of a missing dependency, you can try something like this:
pkg ins midori should fail, but should tell you what is missing. (or you can try with shotwell instead of midori).
Do not proceed with the update, until you have found the problem.
I'm going to run a synth session on my machine, will know better sometimes later.
