Well instead of wasteing 2 days like me and doing it 6 times, with 223 updates it took about 1:30 hrs each time.
do NOT login to kde or gnome or anything else to do the update. That will mean some of the things you are trying to update are being used for the change.
Instead - Do this:
On the login page there is a menu button at the bottom, press it. Console login. (this will take you out of the windowed environment)
now login as "root"
equo update (this syncs the database of applications on your computer with the sabayon server, you will be told there is a new entropy equo)
equo entropy (updates the installer applications)
equo world (this is the big one that will take some time, you'll have to accept licences at the start. But then the rest of the day is your own..)
