    The Portuguese babel packages is babel-portuges. I would expect it to
    be babel-portuguese instead.

That's the package name on CTAN, https://ctan.org/pkg/babel-portuges.
If you want to request changing it, please write CTAN and the babel

    > \documentclass[portuguese,a4paper]{europasscv}
    > \usepackage[portuguese]{babel}
    > Package babel Warning: No hyphenation patterns were preloaded for

It works for me with vanilla TL (which loads all available hyphenation

    In /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/babel-
    portuges/portuges.ldf file ...

>From /usr/share/..., I surmise you are using distro TeX, not the
original TL. Please look at your distro doc/report to distro maintainers.

BTW, your mailer is apparently making incorrect line breaks at hyphens.
--best, karl.
