sorry to hear this, was a bug and you did nothing wrong.
Is a newer version of entropy available to fix this, rc63-r1
How you get this version is the trick, I have one 32 bit system and after it crashed and the new version showed up
Code: Select all
equo install equo entropy

was all I needed to do to get it working again.
On another system that is amd64, I needed to use portage to install it, not sure if 32 or 64 had a play in this.
Code: Select all
emerge --sync

Code: Select all
layman -s

Code: Select all
emerge equo entropy

Code: Select all
equo upgrade

This worked for me to get the new version of entropy installed, but had issues with it, would install rc59
I then ran equo install equo entropy, it installed 63 again and was broke again, I then emerge equo entropy and it installed 59 again, then I just ran equo upgrade and it installed the 15 updates I had and entropy 63-r1 ... this gave me an equo entropy mis match, then I equo installed equo entropy again and all was fine ... never had these issues before, not sure why I had them this time ... is just a little mussing with it and you will be as good as new again.

I got several version conflicts trying this.
The solution is here: ... ut_Entropy

First make sure you use the correct overlay and update it.
# layman --add sabayon
Then Update it (if necessary):
# layman --sync sabayon
Then emerge equo, sulfur and dependencies
# emerge entropy sulfur equo entropy-client-services
Eventually: Upgrade your machine:
# equo upgrade

Hmhofman's method worked for me. The only additional step I had to do was run
Code: Select all
equo conf update

After that it equo updated and upgraded as normal.
