6 In the meantime a new ebuild format version (EAPI) has been introduced; your
7 old portage can't process that, and as a result doesnt understand many new
8 ebuilds.
10 Portage disregards ebuilds where it doesnt know the format, but of course if
11 these are needed to update Portage itself, you're somewhat screwed.
13 Luckily there is a very simple workaround.
15 Download a recent portage (the packager) tarball, or clone git master portage:
18 Then run the "emerge" command inside that checkout, by giving its full path,
19 the same way as you would otherwise run emerge. This updates your system and
20 ideally afterwards your system portage is new and shiny, so you can delete the
21 git clone again.
