Are you using Sync Services to sync Entourage to iCloud calendars?
If yes, this is why this option is no longer availalbe. In Mountain Lion Sync Services were depreciated and in Mavericks there is no sync for Entourage or Outlook with Sync Services. Duplicates and/or deleted items is common with Sync Services.
Another option if you still have access to your old Entourage is to export your calendar events as .rge file.

Import the .rge file
FYI...a heads up on what syncs.
Sync Basics for Microsoft Entourage and Outlook (Mavericks)
CalDAV & CardDAV are protocols used by Apple, Google, Yahoo and others to sync contacts and calendars. Neither Entourage 2008 nor Outlook 2011 support CalDAV or CardDAV.
- You can no longer sync with an iPhone or iPad via iTunes. You can only sync with an iPhone or iPad via a cloud-based service like iCloud or Google.
- You can no longer sync local calendars with OS X Calendar (formerly iCal). You can, however, continue to sync calendars hosted on a cloud-based service like iCloud or Google with Apple's Calendar.
- You can no longer sync with any third-party apps running on your Mac that use Sync Services, like Entourage or Outlook.
I created the Automator workflow on the advice of Diane XXXX, an MVP in officeformac.com's Entourage forums. Could you and she be the same person?!
Yes, that's me.
Which of the two options I've come up with — (1) finding a TM backup of my main Entourage identity and somehow getting it into Entourage or (2) finding the iTunes backup of my iPhone and somehow getting that into Entourage — do you think most likely to succeed? Could you offer some pointers on how to start?
Let's start with your Entourage Identity you have backed up.
The database file that is backed up using the workflow needs to be in the correct location to be read by Entourage. Is the backup Entourage 2004 or 2008?
If it's Entourage 2004, create a folder in Microsoft User Data folder "Office 2004 Identities". If you only backed up the database file, create a folder and name it "Main Identity". Place the database in this folder.
Entourage 2008 can import from a Entourage 2004 Identity. Create a new Identity in Entourage 2008 name it "Import 2004 Identity". "Switch Identity" import the 04 Identity into this new Identity. You can export as .rge file calendar events only.
Switch back to your main 2008 Identity and import the .rge file of calendar event.
If it's Entourage 2008, you need to put the database in a folder with a unique name so you don't overwrite your current Main Identity. Place this in the Office 2008 Identities folder.
Office 2008 can't import from another Office 2008 Identity. There is a way. I'll go into steps to import if it's an Office 2008 Identity if needed.
