Generally, Sabayon is Rolling Release. It upgrade all...
Ocasionally, if the system needs, the Sabayon itself make an "outdated" package...

Is you tried to working with one package thar you dont want to upgrade? Is this or your system had mixed old and new packages?
If this is the case:

You mixed Entropy with Portage? You need to edit /etc/entropy/client.conf and in the line "ignore pseudodowngrades" you need change "disable" to "enable".

The version 1.1.92.1, is the version in the Gentoo database:

https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/me ... kan-loader

It is not in Entropy, because the Sabayon team not "made" the package for Sabayon. Because the "source" of Sabayon packages is ther Gentoo packages,

also, the packages marked "9999" are masked, because they are in testing....

If you want that the team Sabayon upgrade a package for Sabayon users, you may use the session of "package request" in the Sabayon Bugzilla. Acess:

https://bugs.sabayon.org

make a Login for you, Log in the Bugzilla, Choose "new bug", "Entropy", "Request".

Or wait a week for the next update to the Sabayon Weekly Entropy repository to see if the latest version of the desired package has been built for Entropy:
