Check your emerge.log. You had portage-2.2* installed at that time.
portage-2.2 was hard masked later to force all users downgrade to
portage-2.1.6 - portage branch with backported stable features from
portage-2.2. If you still wish to use emerge --update @security you'll
have manually unmask portage-2.2 using /etc/portage/package.unmask (see
handbook and/or man portage for more info). But note, portage-2.2 was
masked for a reason ;)

This explains it.  Thanks, Peter.<br>
