I installed Gentoo this weekend and has sofar been very pleased with the results. Never has my computer worked this well with linux before (tried both Debian & Redhat). However, today, I tried to do:

Code:
root@slartibartfast portage # emerge --pretend update

These are the packages that I would merge, in order.

Calculating dependencies   !!! Couldn't find match for update; aborting.
root@slartibartfast portage # emerge update
Calculating dependencies   !!! Couldn't find match for update; aborting.
root@slartibartfast portage #


And as you can see, it didn't work at all. It seems like it thinks "update" is a package and not a special option.

Can anyone shed any light on this issue?

Ah! That seems to do the trick, but I think the man should be rewritten, since it says:
Code:
       update

       "emerge update" updates the system packages (those listed in /etc/make.profile/packages) to their current  ver-
       sions  .   It  is  always  a good idea to perform an "emerge --pretend update" first just so that you know what
       emerge will be doing.  Adding the --world flag causes emerge to update ALL installed packages to their  current
       versions.


Ohwell, now I know :)
