1 Yes, I did an emerge sync against my local portage mirror which is updated every day, used by my other systems.
3 I did it very early in the install process too; though I forget at exactly what step. I also did it a couple times thereafter after hitting the issue to see if it would correct it, but no luck.

36 you can also use equery check to check all files which should be
37 installed. Did you do an emerge --sync to corrected any portage brackage?
