Yes, you need to update to 11.2, 11.1 is end-of-life and not supported any more. Not really a big problem, upgrading is easy with freebsd-update(8) and will only take a couple of minutes (downloading may take a while depending on your internet connection).

No, it's just (not so) random package from the database you downloaded, used to compare the version used to build packages and what you are currently running.
