Hi, i first picked up on this on a French news website, and the below is pasted from the Brittany Ferries website.

Portsmouth to St Malo - St Malo to Portsmouth
04/12/18 St Malo to Portsmouth 20:30 -
Protests in France have closed access to the port in St Malo. We're sorry to advise that this sailing has had to be diverted to OUISTREHAM as a result. The ship will still depart at 20h30, arriving in Portsmouth on schedule. The ongoing protests are creating considerable disruption throughout France so please allow extra time for your journey.

Just an update on this, below is copied and pasted using google translate

The port of Saint-Malo unblocked by the police The port of Saint-Malo, blocked by a group of "yellow vests", was released Thursday noon by the police, announced the prefecture. Three people were arrested. The "yellow vests" had initially established a filter dam, before blocking at the beginning of the week access to the ferry terminal from which ferries leave for Britain. Since Tuesday, the ships of the Brittany Ferries connecting the Saint-Malo / Portsmouth (GB) had been diverted to the port of Ouistreham, near Caen, nearly 200 km from the port of Brittany.
