Description devsk 2011-11-06 16:40:10 UTC
I just did an 'emerge -uDN world' and then I followed it by 'emerge -pve world | grep " U "' to see if there was a package left un-upgraded. Sure enough, there were 12 packages. All are perl packages.

You can them below. 'genlop' is in the WORLD list in /var/lib/portage/world.

# emerge -pve genlop|grep " U "
[ebuild     U  ] perl-core/CPAN-Meta-YAML-0.4.0 [0.3.0] 29 kB [0]

Anybody know why 'emerge -uDN world' did not upgrade these packages?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -uDN world
2. emerge -pve world | grep " U "
Actual Results:  
The above list for --empty world run should empty.

Expected Results:  
--empty world run is not empty.

Maybe you want to set EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--with-bdeps=y", and this is a duplicate of bug 150238? This is covered in the "Why is it that emerge does not update all packages?" section of the FAQ:
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-11-08 15:53:29 UTC
BTW, there's been some recent discussion about adding an emerge --upgrade target that would enable --with-bdeps=y by default:

Why is that not the default? Just curious.

Here's my response to the "saner defaults" part of the discussion:

> Or go with a saner defaults...

So, are any of the following sane?

1) Pull in updates for packages even though those packages won't be used
for anything.

2) Pull in build-time dependencies for packages that are already built,
even though no portage version has ever done this before by default.

3) Make depclean remove build-time dependencies by default, only to have
the rebuilt/installed the next time that the system is updated.
