Are you trying to update the portage tree? If so, try:

emerge rsync

Try 'emerge --update'

That seems to work on my system. The man page still says to use 'emerge update' however, so you might want to see if a bug has been filed for that already. (and file a new one if it hasn't)

Hi!

Like klieber said ''emerge --update <foo>'. You want to specify something to update though, where foo can be system, world.

Also, 'emerge --help' is currently more up to date than the other documentation.

What's the difference betweeen world and system ?

when i do either emerge --pretend --update world || emerge --pretend update system it shows me the same response.

'emerge --update system' only updates the 'core' packages.

'emerge --update world' also updates the packages specified in the file /var/cache/edb/world.
