for the first time i've installed sabayon in my machine. following the wiki link

i tried upgrading my system. however it ends up in an error. it reads the following

 ## Source Package Manager is too old, please update it: UnsupportedAPIException()
## An error occured. Action aborted.
i tried upgrading it using rigo but there's also no luck. it's all the same.
Please help.

You need to use portage, the gentoo package manager to update equo.
layman -a :adds the sabayon and sabayon-distro repository ports to portage.
layman --sync ALL :makes sure the different ports play together,
emerge --sync :updates the portage package list.

## You can do two and three of the above with one command: emerge --sync && layman --sync sabayon && layman --sync sabayon-distro

emerge entropy equo :installs equo and entropy using the gentoo package manager.

Now you can do your updates: equo upgrade --ask : --ask shows you what will be upgraded, any dependencies, etc. Just type 'y' a couple of times and you're off and running.
