Has Seatfrog been suspended for the duration of the current coronavirus pandemic?

Seems to be virtually impossible to use it to upgrade at the present time - a shame, because it's been handy for some very big savings in the past, but I guess it presents a challenge in the current climate?

I don't know ... but a number of rather good deals are not available at present.  "Simplifying the fare system" seems to mean "removing the good deals" ...  SailRail, Isle of Wight rover tickets that I have come across.

I used it successfully a few weeks ago and from what I can see without placing a bid it looks like the app appears to be working.

I think the Island Liner Day Rover was withdrawn because the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is asking people to book beforehand to enable the railway to allocate each party sole occupancy of a compartment.  The Island Line Day Rover - which doesn't include the preserved railway and only the Ryde to Shanklin line is still available.
