Funtoo without update since 2016




I haven't updated my Funtoo distribution since mid 2016, because a number of reasons. The system it's still working but very outdated.

I've being trying to update my system quite some time now, but I'm having a lot of redundant conflicts.

I didn't manage to find any good documentation on how to update such outdated system.

I don't really want to back up my system and install from scratch the whole system.

So, does anyone here have a good advise or document on how to do that?

Right now I'm not writing this from my machine so I can't really post the emerge output with the conflicts, if necessary I'll do that later today.
