I went to update today and had the following two issues. I can get past the first by masking =media-libs/libpng-1.5.14. I can get past the second by downgrading to =dev-python/gst-python-0.10.22 and masking =dev-python/gst-python-0.10.22-r1. I'm just curious what's going on, since it has happened on two different machines. Are they related, or independent of each other?
These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! !!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled !!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict: media-libs/libpng:0 (media-libs/libpng-1.5.13-r1::gentoo, installed) pulled in by >=media-libs/libpng-1.4:0/0= required by (x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.26.5::gentoo, installed) (media-libs/libpng-1.5.14::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by (no parents that aren't satisfied by other packages in this slot) It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are impossible to satisfy simultaneously. If such a conflict exists in the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can not be installed simultaneously. For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook. !!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=dev-python/pygobject-2.28:2[python_targets_python2_6(-)?,python_targets_python2_7(-)?,-python_single_target_python2_6(-),-python_single_target_python2_7(-)]" have been masked. !!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request: - dev-python/pygobject-2.28.6-r1000::gentoo (masked by: ) (dependency required by "dev-python/gst-python-0.10.22-r1" [installed]) (dependency required by "media-sound/quodlibet-2.5[gstreamer]" [installed]) (dependency required by "@selected" [set]) (dependency required by "@world" [argument]) For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

Same issue here trying to install gnome. Isn't this already reported as bug 384 - http://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-384 ?
The title of this thread should probably be changed since the problem is not exclusive to libpng nor gst-python.

emerge -1 sys-apps/portage
Thank you leprosys, I had similar issues and that worked for me, too.
Sorry for the late reply to my own topic. Things got crazy last week and I wasn't able to get back to this.

Yes, this was exactly the cause. The bug had not been posted at the time I was writing the original post. Now that FL-384 has been resolved, and all my machines have been upgraded to the latest portage, my systems are updating without issue.
