Hello , after emerge --sync a message appears I have to update portage. I was trying
emerge portage, but there was an error thrue blocked packages:
emrge -p portage shows:
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

[ebuild U ] sys-apps/sandbox-1.2.18.1-r2 [1.2.18.1]
[ebuild U ] dev-python/pycrypto-2.0.1-r6 [2.0.1-r5]
[ebuild U ] sys-apps/portage-2.1.4 [2.1.3.4-r1] LINGUAS="-pl*"
*** Portage will stop merging at this point and reload itself,
then resume the merge.
[ebuild U ] app-shells/bash-3.2_p33 [3.2_p15-r1] USE="-plugins%"
[blocks B ] <sys-apps/portage-2.1.4_rc1 (is blocking app-shells/bash-3.2_p33)


normally I woluld do the following
emerge --unmerge bash
then
emerge portage
then emerge bash.

is this the right way to solve such things?
But in this case I affraid after unmerging bash the system becomes to be unusable because bash is required for working on the system.
What is te right way to solve thsi?

Greetings Randolf Balasus
