Im a experience linux user and recently I try Gentoo love it and now Im using VLOS. Im confused on how to update portage. I read the Gentoo handbook but Im still a little bit confused. I understand that by doing emerge sync Im updating the "catalogue" and by doing emerge emerge portage Im updating the portage system itself, or Im wrong?? So now when I try emerge sync it work fine but it give me this message:
* An update to portage is available. It is _highly_ recommended
* that you update portage now, before any other packages are updated.
* Please do so and then update ALL of your configuration files.
So I assumed that all I had to do was emerge portage but now when I try to emerge a package a get an error like this:
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "wine" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
!!! Problem in app-emulation/wine dependencies.
!!! __init__() takes at most 5 arguments (6 given) exceptions
So what Im doing wrong, I think Im missing something like changing a configuration file but I dont know. I try the etc-update but I still get the same error. Can somebody point me to the right direction?
Ps: All I want is to update portage not the whole system or the packages that I have.
