Description Andrew Udvare 2020-08-02 08:49:36 UTC
Did my normal world update and there were GHC and Haskell updates. Almost all the updates succeeded except for this package. I tried haskell-updater and it does not work:

Searching for packages installed with a different version of GHC.

Found the following old packages:
  * dev-haskell/deepseq-generics:0

Searching for Haskell libraries with broken dependencies.

No broken packages found!

Updater's past history:
Pass 1 : dev-haskell/deepseq-generics:0
ERROR: Updater stuck in the loop and can't progress

Similar bug but with a different package:
Comment 1 Erik Quaeghebeur 2020-08-02 21:49:58 UTC
I can confirm this.
Comment 2 Andrew Udvare 2020-08-03 11:24:55 UTC
Found out nothing depends on this package at this point for my machine. As such, this could be the solution:

emerge --depclean dev-haskell/deepseq-generics
