    "DEPEND/*DEPEND problem"? update profile?


    Rather than doing a stage 1 install, I did a minimal install from a universal CD with release 2004.1 with the intention of upgrading on-line. Following is the command I used and the response I got. I think the message means that either I need to change my "profile" (/etc/profile?, make.profile?) or maybe that my base install is now too obsolete to upgrade this way.
    Code:
    root # emerge --update --deep --fetchonly system
    Calculating system dependencies |
    !!! all ebuilds that could satisfy "=sys-devel/automake-1.5*" have been masked.
    !!! possible candidates are:
    - sys-devel/automake-1.5 (masked by: profile)
    !!!    (dependency required by "sys-devel/automake-wrapper-1-r1" [ebuild])
     
    !!! Problem with ebuild sys-apps/baselayout-1.11.13-r1
    !!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.
     
    !!! Depgraph creation failed.
    I'm trying to learn how this whole emerge and portage system works, so what's the best way to upgrade from what I have, or do I really need to start from the top again?

    you can try:
    Code:
    source /etc/profile
    i believe that helps update from one version of gentoo to the next. i know you don't have to start all over again to update from an old version...that's one of the big advantages of gentoo/portage

    You may want to take a look at this gentoo forums post: LOng Link which says you should look in /usr/portage/profiles/default-x86-1.4/deprecated.
