depending of the components, freebsd-update(8) can be used to automate base
system's updates.

PAGER=cat can help you to get it done; checking for stuff on
/var/db/freebsd-update too.

For the record, it is "ASSUME_ALWAYS_YES".

Should that script include a 'pkg update' before 'pkg upgrade'?

it's not a must, but I would; for "didactic" reasons, maybe ~ so people get
a better and clear understanding of a proper update/upgrade process.

clean pkg's cache (previous fetched tarballs), and/or backup installed
packages can be a thing too.

also... you can use pkg-static to perform an upgrade of the pkg(8) package;
than upgrade the rest of the packages.
