Description Benjamin Schindler 2015-08-23 09:40:03 UTC
This seems to be the same issue as #554734, but I wasn't able to reopen that issue, so I opened a new one. 
virtual/eject pulls in sys-block/eject even though util-linux is provided. Adding sys-block/eject to package.provided makes the issue go away, but this is a mere workaround.

Comment 1 Alexandre Rostovtsev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-08-26 20:53:29 UTC
Might be a bug in portage dependency resolution logic.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-08-26 22:07:12 UTC
This might be triggered by conflicting USE flag settings for util-linux, or something like that. Please post the output of the following command:

   emerge -pv sys-apps/util-linux --verbose-conflicts
