I experience the same issue. I never had this issue until I did the following:

Code: Select all
equo repoinfo sabayon.org package.mask > /etc/portage/package.mask && equo repoinfo sabayon.org package.unmask > /etc/portage/package.unmask && equo repoinfo sabayon.org package.keywords > /etc/portage/package.keywords && equo repoinfo sabayon.org package.use > /etc/portage/package.use


Then I cleaned up the package.* files in /etc to remove the repoinfo stuff at the top.

Most of the packages in those files are then flagged by portage as invalid atoms.

i applied the commands that you suggested, therefore no more keywords, neither mask, neither unmask....in the package.keywords, for ex... only this message::


>> Did you even read equo --help??


File:
package.file not found

The problem is solved....
i deleted all the lines,in the package.unmask, package.mask and package.keywords files and then, regenerate the files, using the reported gentoo
procedures and scripts....
