    emerge - u world (error)


    I'm getting an error when trying to run any varation of emerge world. I got the following message:

    !!! Error: the <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 package conflicts with another package.
    !!! both can't be installed on the same system together.
    !!! Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.


    So then I run this to unmerge the block:

    emerge -C x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2

    and it doesn't work and I get this:
    --- Couldn't find x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 to unmerge.

    >>> unmerge: No packages selected for removal.


    Am I doing something wrong?

    Yes, it does not mean that it conflicts with itself, it means with another package, give us the full output

    emerge -pu world

    These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

    Calculating world dependencies ...done!
    [blocks B ] <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 (is blocking x11-themes/gtk-engines-2.6.7)


    That is the only block I get.

    I think I fixed it, I did this:

    emerge -C gnome-themes app-admin

    then ran emerge -up world and it had no blocks.

    Thanks!
