Much thanks for your quick reply.
1) Yes, I DID check the logs located at /usr/local/ovs/var/log/openvswitch. The message is just the same as the one popped up for ovs-vsctl command.
Following is the pieces from the log files.
2019-01-22T16:34:08.333Z|00051|bridge|WARN|could not open network device port1 (No such device)
2) I also tried with the older version 2.0.0 and the results are different with newer version such as 2.11.90. Please see the following blocks.
a) for the version 2.11.90. The error message will occure since port1 does not exist.
[root at localhost ovs]# ovs-vsctl --version
ovs-vsctl (Open vSwitch) 2.11.90
DB Schema 7.16.1
[root at localhost ovs]# ovs-vsctl show
[root at localhost ovs]# ovs-vsctl add-port br0 port1
ovs-vsctl: Error detected while setting up 'port1': could not open network device port1 (No such device). See ovs-vswitchd log for details.
ovs-vsctl: The default log directory is "/usr/local/var/log/openvswitch".
b) For version 2.0.0. The error message will not occur even if the port1 was NOT pre-created.
root at localhost ~]# ovs-vsctl --version
ovs-vsctl (Open vSwitch) 2.0.0
Compiled Apr 19 2018 17:57:34
[root at localhost ~]# ovs-vsctl add-br br0
[root at localhost ~]# ovs-vsctl add-port br0 port1
[root at localhost ~]# ovs-vsctl show

We wrote this error message to encourage people to look at the log. It
even says where the log is so that you can look at it more easily.
Despite that, you have not told us what is in the log. Can you explain
how the error message could make this clearer? We really are trying to
be helpful here, but numerous people read the error message and don't
actually pay any attention to it. Why?

3) is right and it has not changed since the very first version of OVS
