<sys-apps/shadow-4.7-r2 is blocking sys-apps/util-linux-2.38.1

Question

I am updating a system that has gone about 6 months since last update.  At some point binutils got hosed and I overwrote things with the stage3 tar file, to get out of that.  I am almost back up, but util-linux is an issue and it is blocked by a version of a package that does not exist in my repo.

 

The title says it, I have sys-apps/util-linux-2.38.1 installed and sys-apps/shadow 4.7-r1 installed.  Portage is telling me that without shadow 4.7-r2, it cannot go on.  I just did an ego sync and I do not have a shadow newer than what is already installed.  I suspect there is a way out of this, but I am not finding it.

I also cannot compile spidermonkey >v68 and have some issues with harfbuzz and the later version of Meson, but those are other issues that I will post separately if they persist.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

@gigabot3457 when you have a messed-up system, it can be useful to just repeatedly emerge -auDN @world and gradually things will get in better shape. You can temporarily --exclude packages that are not yet building to get other parts in place.

Funtoo next-release newest versions are util-linux- 2.38.1 and shadow-4.7-r1

https://code.funtoo.org/bitbucket/projects/AUTO/repos/core-kit/browse/sys-apps/util-linux?at=refs%2Fheads%2Fnext

In order to stop the error you need to find and remove the rogue ebuild creating the block.

There is no e2fsprogs ebuild at the moment.

Once this is sorted out a new ebuild will be pushed to portage.

sys-fs/e2fsprogs autogen is broken

 

Workaround is to use git to restore removed e2fsprogs-1.46.5.ebuild and Manifest :

cd /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/
sudo git checkout 3eca7^ -- sys-fs/e2fsprogs/{e2fsprogs-1.46.5.ebuild,Manifest}
sudo emerge -1av e2fsprogs

Starting with a default make.conf, but I will see if I can figure out what is trying to pull the newer than possible release.  Head scratching.  I am working, just didn't finish the world update automatically.  Now that I am functional, I will post config/logs, if I continue to have issues. Thanks.

Exclude is probably what I was trying to remember and could not.  The downside to not having too many issues is these things leave my realm of recollection.  Just got back up after having my mobo die for reasons shortly after my last response and still trying to get a drive change to work as I want.  Just did an ego sync and will work through the blocking packages in emerge -auDN @world.  Things are in a lot better shape and the Next update is overall going much better than 1.4 did for me.  Honestly, I shot myself in the foot when binutils did not fully install and thought I would just extract the latest tarball, completely forgetting that /etc was mounted, not backed up recently and rather complex. I think my old mobo just died from the 1,000 reboots as I sorted all of that out. I appreciate the help and it does help a lot, because I really was not sure how to go about getting around it.  End up just building trees of packages until they hit a stopping point.  Meson seems to be them breaking old functionality to match their documented functionality and a bunch of Gnome packages not changing to match the documented function, yet.  Possibly they're unmaintained now. Sometimes I just have to switch between Python version and rebuild to get something to work.  Anyway, now that I am 98% working, I will just mess around some more this weekend on it.  Thanks again.

Well I got to this point and I am cross-eyed.  I do not feel good about trying to unmerge binutils.  Maybe the exclude will help here.  I will look at it later.  Thanks again.

I made a couple steps forward and then hit a complaint about sys-fs/e2fsprogs blocking.  Thinking I could get around it by removing e2fsprogs and just installing the new version, I removed the package.  But upon trying to reinstall/update it, I have found that sys-fs/e2fsprogs no longer exist in the tree and I cannot install anything because the package is uninstallable.  More I am just wonder if anyone else can confirm this.  Tomorrow I will fire up a VM and install Funtoo on it, see if I hit a similar issue.  Starting to wonder if this install is just cursed.  Sorry for the numerous messages.

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "sys-fs/e2fsprogs".

emerge: searching for similar names...
emerge: Maybe you meant any of these: sys-fs/xfsprogs, sys-fs/reiserfsprogs, sys-fs/btrfs-progs?

I tried twice, just because I am still not entirely positive I am just not making a typo.
