Back again with my troubles, im desperate in googling for this error...

When i do emerge --sync it says portage has update.
emerge portage says its conflicting with something.

--pretend says it conflicts:
<sys-apps/portage-2.1.4.4_rc1 conflicts with bash-3.2_p33 or something like that.

i've already emerged bash to a newer one, sandbox emerged to a newer one, and portage still wont update.. says something about make xml command not found, and a lot of errors in different lines in ebuild, errors in environment.

doing emerge --oneshot --nodeps portage

is giving this error, otherway it blocks bash.

GUYS! :( how can i fix it?
im new in linux, so please provide me with some commands, what should i try to do, how to update this portage. or maybe to download manually another package?

BUT! links says: command not found. WHY ? :-[ - ]

S.O.S

You haven't given us enough information to tell what's wrong.

1) Calm down and don't do anything. You're likely to make things worse if you don't know what you're doing.
2) Post the result of "emerge --pretend --verbose portage"
3) Post the result of "emerge --info"

Mod Edit: don't try this as it will break portage - tomk

Try this
Code:
emerge --unmerge bash
emerge portage
emerge bash

:D

Unmerging bash will kill the system unless any other shell is installed.

And even if another shell is installed unmerging bash will break portage in such a way that you have to reinstall bash manually.

Ok I tried it on a spare partition.
I did a basic installation, configured it, rebooted and tested everything.
then I did emerge --unmerge bash and the system was immediately completely broken.

Thanks for helping me to understand that. :D

i had that problem on a new installation, copied the old /etc/make.conf
you are probably running ~arch? emerge --info would be useful :)
anyways i solved it by changing ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~amd64 to amd64 emerging portage and then changing it back

i hit this too with a new install. i think i worked around it by updating to the current stable version of bash, updating portage, and then updating to the ~arch bash.

i think our blocker messages are pretty vague. i know there have been improvements in that area, but they can still be pretty cryptic for the end user and could use some more work. but admittedly i'm an outsider to portage development so i don't know the problem space, which i imagine is difficult.

Or a good solution is get a binary and copy manually into the respective folders

Then, reinstall bash ;)

I think that the "amusing" (not!) advice to "unmerge bash" should be killed from the thread before it gets Googled. Someone a few years hence might actually do it.
