When I attempt to use the Google Chrome browser I'm informed the version is outdated and should be updated.

However, I have the latest version installed:

Code:

*  www-client/google-chrome
      Latest version installed: 44.0.2403.130_p1
      Homepage:      http://www.google.com/chrome
      Description:   The web browser from Google
      License:       google-chrome


Note the version: 44.0.2403.130_p1

Whereas the latest version is 57.0.2987 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Chrome_version_history)

Is this particular version 44 patched for vulnerability, but perhaps just lacking new features present in the later builds? Or is it really as old as it looks, both in version number and in vulnerabilities present?

Am I using the wrong ebuild for chrome?

The latest version in portage tree is
Code:

     Available versions:  ~57.0.2987.110^msd {+plugins L10N="+am +ar +bg +bn +ca +cs +da +de +el +en-GB +es +es-419 +et +fa +fi +fil +fr +gu +he +hi +hr +hu +id +it +ja +kn +ko +lt +lv +ml +mr +ms +nb +nl +pl +pt-BR +pt-PT +ro +ru +sk +sl +sr +sv +sw +ta +te +th +tr +uk +vi +zh-CN +zh-TW"}

google-chrome is not patched because is the same binary version that you can download from official web site.
You have sync your portage tree (emerge --sync)?

I do emerge --sync quite often, last time this week (and again while investigating this issue).

Code:

emerge --info

The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.accept_keywords" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by >www-client/google-chrome-57 (argument)
=www-client/google-chrome-57.0.2987.110 ~amd64


So www-client/google-chrome-57.0.2987.110 exists, why doesn't it emerge it automatically when I attempt to emerge google-chrome as normal?

This is all I have regarding chrome in /etc/portage:

Code:

portage # grep -Ri chrome *
package.accept_keywords:# required by www-client/google-chrome (argument)
package.accept_keywords:=www-client/google-chrome-44.0.2403.130_p1 ~amd64
package.accept_keywords:=www-client/google-chrome-57.0.2987.110 ~amd64
package.license:# required by www-client/google-chrome (argument)
package.license:>=www-client/google-chrome-44.0.2403.130_p1 google-chrome

The error message shown by the command I gave you explains it. Your package configuration did not permit Portage to pull in ~testing packages, so a keyword change was required. It looks like you made that change in response to the command I gave, since your grep now shows an entry that, had it been present when you ran the emerge --pretend --verbose, would have prevented the message telling you to keyword it.

I understand, thank you.

However, I don't understand why portage didn't ask for this flag before?

Is it supposed to be up to the user to manually check if there are new versions available of an ebuild that need such a flag added? In my experience portage will ask for various flags to be added as needed when new versions become available. Is there something particular about this specific ebuild (Chrome) or about my system configuration in general for this case that prevented that from working as intended?

Portage will ask for a keyword/flag change if that is required to satisfy the constraints you give it. If you give it an open-ended request like "install any acceptable version of Chrome" and it can find a version that satisfies your current keywords, it will install that in preference to asking you to change keywords. If there are no keyword-acceptable versions that match the constraint you gave, then it will request a keyword change. That is why I told you to use a version qualifier. Based on your output, I expected that the only versions which could match the version-qualified command would require a keyword change, which provoked Portage to tell you to change the keywords.

Since old versions of Chrome no longer exist in tree, I find it a bit odd that a simple emerge www-client/google-chrome was insufficient. However, since you never posted exactly what commands led you to the conclusion that Portage was not attempting to install a new version, I cannot rule out user error. If you still have the scrollback history where you ran emerge www-client/google-chrome from before you ran the command I proposed, please post it. Subsequent commands did modify your keywords and may have modified @world, so rerunning the command now is very likely not to produce the information required to diagnose this.

As an aside, you may want to change your package.accept_keywords file to use version-unqualified atom for Chrome. It appears that the Gentoo packagers for Chrome follow a strange design where, rather than using ~testing for recent versions and stable for proven versions, they keep all versions in ~testing and use separate package names for stable/testing. This makes version-locked accept_keywords entries irrelevant and using them increases the maintenance burden on you.
