It seems that it is having problems updating the package list.

Try this (as root):

Code: Select all

equo update --force
if you have still no luck try updating entropy using portage (as root):

Code: Select all

emerge --sync && layman -S
emerge -av entropy equo sulfur
equo database gentoosync
then try again:

Code: Select all

equo update

(for large files use the [ code ] tags)

Try changing:

Code: Select all

repository|sabayonlinux.org|Sabayon Linux Official Repository|http://pkg.sabayon.org|http://pkg.sabayon.org#bz2       
to:

Code: Select all

repository|sabayonlinux.org|Sabayon Linux Official Repository|http://svn.sabayonlinux.org/entropy|http://svn.sabayonlinux.org/entropy#bz2
(it has to be in a single line, as the original)

You need to be root to do this, after that retry with:

Code: Select all

equo update
keeping your fingers crossed :P
