when i try to emerge update system/world, it never updates anything, even though newer versions are available. i sat at portage 1.9.2 for a while before i realized it wasn't working. all i get is:

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

Calculating world dependencies  ...done!


any ideas?

The actual problem is rather that update is not an action, but an option, thus emerge --update world/system should do the job. Of course you should also emerge rsync first :)

Ah, that's what I'm looking for. And yes, I did do an emerge rsync. Several times in fact :)

Thanks!

No problem :)
Actually the fact, that an emerge update world doesn't exit with an error message can be considered a bug. You can do an emerge <anything> world and it doesn't exit with an error message, even in the newest Portage 1.9.5. Maybe you should file a bug report.

I think I will. It's not altogether intuitive, without at least a message saying "are you sure you didn't want to do..."

Also, the man page for emerge makes no mention of the --update argument, which is why I incorrectly assumed --update == update.
