Hi there!

I am lost again.

when I tried to "emerge --sync" to update the system I only got this message:

"Syncing repository 'gentoo' into '/usr/portage'...

fatal: Unable to look up github.com (port 9418) (Temporary failure in name resolution)

!!! git pull error in /usr/portage ...

q: Updating ebuild cache in /usr/portage ...

q: Finished 38880 entries in 0.459652 seconds"

So what's the story??? Can you help?

Greetings

Try

# emerge --regen

 

If You've an active software firewall ... try to disable it temporarily.

If you have internet connession, You can try a "refresh" for Portage:

# mv /usr/portage /usr/portage_old && emerge --sync

 

If after that all is "good" you'll can remove Portage_old _'_ :)
