How should I handle packages that fail the unpack phase?

Post by IhaveNoName » Wed Jan 07, 2015 22:13

I have one particular package icedtea-web.

I'm only having issues unpacking dev-java/icedtea-web*. Every icedtea-web package available fails the unpack phase. Here's the thing I try to open the tar.gz (GUI) I get an error and I cant access the contents oh the archive file. But if I open the .tar.gz (CLI) it will unzip with an error code of 2. I've also pulled the icedtea-web package from Git. I get the same errors trying to unzip.

What can I do to solve this? Not being able to install this package is keeping me from updating my system. Well kinda I've been using the --keep-going if fact its been a problem for so long I added --keep-going to my EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS. I would really appreciate some assistance on how to fix my issue. here is what I get when I emerge icedtea-web.

Code: Select all

 * Package:    dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1
 * Repository: gentoo
 * Maintainer: [email protected]
 * USE:        abi_x86_64 amd64 elibc_glibc icedtea7 kernel_linux nsplugin userland_GNU
 * FEATURES:   preserve-libs sandbox usersandbox
 * Using: icedtea-bin-7
>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking icedtea-web-1.5.1.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1/work
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
 * ERROR: dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1::gentoo failed (unpack phase):
 *   failure unpacking icedtea-web-1.5.1.tar.gz
 * Call stack:
 *     , line   93:  Called src_unpack
 *             environment, line 4857:  Called default
 *, line  770:  Called default_src_unpack
 *, line  797:  Called __eapi0_src_unpack
 *, line  648:  Called unpack 'icedtea-web-1.5.1.tar.gz'

 *, line   39:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *              [[ $x -ne 0 && $x -ne ${PORTAGE_SIGPIPE_STATUS:-141} ]] && die "[email protected]"
 * If you need support, post the output of `emerge --info '=dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1::gentoo'`,
 * the complete build log and the output of `emerge -pqv '=dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1::gentoo'`.
!!! When you file a bug report, please include the following information:
GENTOO_VM=icedtea-bin-7  CLASSPATH="" JAVA_HOME="/opt/icedtea-bin-"
JAVACFLAGS="-source 1.6 -target 1.6" COMPILER=""
and of course, the output of emerge --info =icedtea-web-1.5.1
 * The complete build log is located at '/var/calculate/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1/temp/build.log'.
 * The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/calculate/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1/temp/environment'.
 * Working directory: '/var/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-web-1.5.1-r1/work'
I can provide other logs if needed.
