You need to use the -d option to get enough information to diagnose this; but take a look at https://trac.macports.org/wiki/FAQ#selfupdatefails for common problems and solutions.
Seems Apple no longer installs Xcode's command line tools. See here: http://ericwilson.erics.ws/ericsblog/2012/8/26/macports-port-selfupdate-fail for solution.
Just wanted to add that on Mac OS 10.12 Sierra i was getting the WARNING: GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT is not defined error on selfupdate and i did already have the Xcode command line tools installed, licensed and working. But my copy of Xcode had become out of date, even though that was not showing up on the automatic software updates. I had version 7 and for Sierra (and macports) you need version 8. So I manually downloaded Xcode 8 via the App Store and it solved the problem for me.
