Code:

# qlist -Iv sys-apps/portage
sys-apps/portage-2.1.6.13


# emerge portage

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=dev-db/sqlite-3" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- dev-db/sqlite-3.7.4 (masked by: EAPI 3)
- dev-db/sqlite-3.7.3 (masked by: EAPI 3)
- dev-db/sqlite-3.7.2 (masked by: EAPI 3)

The current version of portage supports EAPI '2'. You must upgrade to a
newer version of portage before EAPI masked packages can be installed.

For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
(dependency required by "dev-lang/python-2.6.6-r1" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "sys-apps/portage-2.1.9.25" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "portage" [argument])


Looks like I have a chicken and egg problem here. How do I update portage (followed by the rest of the system)?

This may help:

Code:
emerge --nodeps portage


As it will ignore any dependencies that portage may need.

See this recent [solved] thread which was the same problem.

Code:
eix -I  portage
[U] sys-apps/portage
     Available versions:  [P]2.1.6.7 2.1.6.13 2.1.8.3 2.1.9.24{tbz2} 2.1.9.25 (~)2.1.9.31 (~*)2.2.0_alpha15 **9999 {build doc epydoc +ipc linguas_pl python3 selinux}

So 2.1.6.13 is stable and current. Still you could try
Code:
emerge =portage-2.1.9.25 -1

Which should include support for EAPI 3.

This is just getting worse and worse.

I can't upgrade portage without upgrading python.

Code:

$ qlist -Iv dev-lang/python
dev-lang/python-2.4.4-r6
dev-lang/python-2.5.4-r2


Code:

# emerge -1O python

Not even close.

Well, looks like it is getting harder. portage-2.1.6.13 has remained in the tree for rescuing older systems and helping to provide an upgrade path. So, the most recent & best forum thread that shows how to upgrade an old system is this one. Look near end of the thread (page 2), he summarizes the steps that worked. It will involve emerging some binary pkgs from tinderbox which will give you a working toolchain capable of upgrading the rest of your system.

Oh, and check how old your kernel is, because the new coreutils breaks your system if your running an old kernel.

According to the output in the first post, Portage picked 2.1.9.25 on its own, then failed out due to the errors shown.

OP: please provide the output of emerge --info if you need any further assistance solving this. Also, take note that the post referenced by dol-sen assumes an x86 system and uses tinderbox binaries for x86 as a result. If you are on some other architecture, take care to grab binaries appropriate to that architecture instead.

Leaving it there (not working) doesn't help much. :(

I actually managed (I thought) to upgrade the toolchain (before tackling portage).

Code:

emerge -1 linux-headers texinfo gettext binutils gcc glibc baselayout zlib


finished with no errors.

I have seen that later coreutils needs a "recent" kernel, but I have no idea what that (objectively) means.

Yes, I tried sourcing /etc/profile.

It seems that my biggest immediate problem is that the system can't find gcc. I upgraded eselect to 1.2.11 (latest stable), and it didn't help.

Yes, this is x86, but I would have noticed that and corrected it if it weren't. :)

I should have noticed this earlier. You tried to use eselect to manage the active gcc, but this is not the proper way to do it. You must use gcc-config to list or set the active gcc. I suspect that you somehow removed the active gcc, which is why any future calls to gcc now fail. Sourcing /etc/profile ensures that the running shell uses the gcc that is selected. However, since you have removed the gcc which is selected, sourcing does you no good. Reset your gcc to the one version that you have installed, then try a test build of a simple package that requires a working C compiler.

Once you have gcc working again, you should be able to emerge python-2.6 which only needs EAPI=2 followed by portage. I would emerge them separately. Newer portage versions are much better at handling blocks automatically along with other use dependency problems. That and a few other feature improvements are the reason for the EAPI advances in the past few years. (The big reason there are so many upgrade problems with old portage installs these days).

Oh, and keep some binpkg's of your system pkgs before you do a bunch of upgrades. You may need to downgrade one or two along the way.

Oops. You are right. Why does gentoo use eselect for everything except gcc?

Well, I fixed the gcc problem, and tried emerging python-2.6.6-r1. That worked, so I should be on my way.

But:

Code:

emerge -C dev-lang/python-2.5.4-r2

 dev-lang/python
    selected: 2.5.4-r2
   protected: none
     omitted: 2.6.6-r1

>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.

>>> Waiting 5 seconds before starting...
>>> (Control-C to abort)...
>>> Unmerging in: 5 4 3 2 1
>>> Unmerging dev-lang/python-2.5.4-r2...
 * The 'prerm' phase of the 'dev-lang/python-2.5.4-r2' package has failed
 * with exit value -1.
 *
 * The problem occurred while executing the ebuild file named
 * 'python-2.5.4-r2.ebuild' located in the '/var/db/pkg/dev-
 * lang/python-2.5.4-r2' directory. If necessary, manually remove the
 * environment.bz2 file and/or the ebuild file located in that directory.
 *
 * Removal of the environment.bz2 file is preferred since it may allow the
 * removal phases to execute successfully. The ebuild will be sourced and
 * the eclasses from the current portage tree will be used when necessary.
 * Removal of the ebuild file will cause the pkg_prerm() and pkg_postrm()
 * removal phases to be skipped entirely.

Run out of disk space or main memory? maybe clean things up a bit.

No such luck.

Well, gcc-config is much older than eselect, and the attempt to rewrite it as an eselect module has failed miserably.

I don't think so. I have over a gigabyte of ram and am not running anything (not even X), and several gigabytes of disk space.

/var/tmp/portage is empty (or at least was before my subsequent attempt to emerge portage).

did you eselect python-2.6 after the merge. Looking again, looks like it failed, due to removing the active python.

I didn't explicitly select it, but it is active:

Code:

$ eselect python list
Available Python interpreters:
  [1]   python2.5
  [2]   python2.6 *

I'm running out of ideas. To me it looks like a python problem. Perhaps py-2.6 didn't compile properly? If no one else comes up with a solution, try getting a python binary from tinderbox.

Does emerge --info show the new python?

Try calling emerge from python2.6
Code:
python2.6 /usr/bin/emerge --info
but I doubt that will change anything.

Yes.

I can do emerge --info and emerge -f, but trying to actually emerge anything results in the same error as above.

Perhaps you should also run python-updater.

<zmedico> yeah, it has !!<sys-apps/portage-2.1.9
 user might have triggered the bug by using --nodeps


looks like you'll need to grab a binary portage if your python-2.5 is broken from trying to unmerge it. You can try to run your old portage from python-2.5 without eselecting it. If it fails,...
Code:
python2.5 emerge -1v portage

or

wget http://tinderbox.dev.gentoo.org/default-linux/x86/sys-apps/portage-2.1.9.25.tbz2


use the portage rescue guide to unpack it.

That failed miserably, because it wanted to re-emerge packages no longer in the tree (dev-libs/newt-0.52.2, for example).

OK. I got the binary portage (2.1.9.25) from tinderbox, shoved that in, and managed to emerge sys-apps/portage-2.1.9.25 (lots of complaints about file collisions, but it went through). Obviously the docs weren't kidding when they said that older versions would not work with < python 2.6.

Now, I am trying to re-emerge everything. I used the --keep-going option, but it stopped the first time an ebuild (libtool) failed, and I couldn't get it to resume, so I had to start over. :(

Lots of potential potholes ahead, but I will post follow-ups.

Dol-sen, your idea about using python 2.5 to update portage (once I have 2.6 on the system) probably would have worked, but I had installed the binary portage before I read it.

For anyone else reading this thread with similar problems.

You will want to upgrade to
Code:
emerge -1v =dev-lang/python-2.6.5-r3
emerge -1v portage


Python-2.6.5 does not have that problem with older portage's and will work with new portage as well. Afterwards you can update to python 2.66 or 2.7.
