emerge update error

Post by bg3075 » Tue Nov 17, 2009 4:17

When trying to update all packages from terminal:

Code: Select all

emerge --update --deep --newuse world
I get an error:

Code: Select all

The log file consists of the same. What may be the problem? Or, can I somehow let emerge know to exclude this package update?

are you sure you want to be using portage? If you are new, you may want to stick with entropy
