Error upgrading with pkg-get


Hmm, this has been happening for 2 weeks now, with anything i try to update. I keep getting this error message. I'm not sure what happened, or what i should do.

Code:

WARNING:
    The <CSWsasl> package depends on the package currently
    being removed.

Did you try to remove that package manually, with pkgrm command?

Sorry for the late reply. Well, what's the use of pkg-get -U if ill have to do it manually? i don't see where the actual problem is.

And besides, i really don't want to manually remove all 30~ packages myself.

30 packages ? I see only one causing problem: CSWbdb4.
If you feel this is a bug, you can file one to the bdb4 package maintainer at http://www.blastwave.org/bugtrack/

Well ok i exadurated a bit But yes, they are around 10 packages.. I only pasted a small part of the whole thing. It tries to download and install the same package three times, and then moves to the next one.

>> Sorry for the late reply
It indicates how badly you need a solution for the issue

Instead of relying completely on a tool, help it as far as you can, if the tool is not able to move forward. And as jlliagre suggested, help Blastwave folks, by submitting a bug against the tool with good description of the symptoms of failure.

Ok. I just wanted to check first if it was something wrong on my side, like a missing or misconfigured package. But for this case, i'll submit a detailed bug.

Thanks.

Updating a PKG package.

If you want to update a package that already exists you might want to try the following:

edit the file
/var/sadm/install/admin/default
and change the line in
instance=unique
to
instance=overwrite

That might do the trick.

Cheers.
