!!! The following update(s) have been skipped due to unsatisfied dependencies
!!! triggered by backtracking:

app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets:0

!!! Problems have been detected with your world file
!!! Please run emaint --check world


!!! Ebuilds for the following packages are either all
!!! masked or don't exist:
app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets

---------------

Given the above output, app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets should not be masked because it doesn't exist but rather, masked because a dep it needs is masked because a dep that the dep needs is package.mask'd
