This machine is fundamentally stable. Only two ~amd64 packages. (checkrestart & google-chrome) Only two use flags installed by portage. No masked packages. It's gotten stuck with updates for at least a month and I'm trying to figure out what's causing all of these emerge problems. Thanks in advance.
Code:

[ebuild     U  ] kde-apps/kde-apps-meta-16.04.3 [15.12.3-r3]
[uninstall     ] kde-plasma/kactivities-workspace-5.5.0

NOTE: Use the '--verbose-conflicts' option to display parents omitted above

It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously.  If such a conflict exists in
the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can
not be installed simultaneously.

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man
page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

Attack the hard block first? Maybe:
emerge --sync # some of these packages look stale
emerge -av --backtrack=300 =dev-qt/qtwebkit-5.6.1:5/5.6::gentoo # Current stable

progress?

Have you tried:
perl-cleaner reallyall
python-updater

As the emerge was going to update KDE from 15.x to 16.x I removed most KDE packages by hand first. After stripping out a few old applications that I don't believe my wife uses I was able to get

emerge -epv @ world

to not complain. The machine is currently rebuilding about 680 packages. I'll let that run until complete - probably later tonight. Not the fastest laptop.

eix-sync had been run so I think portage had a fighting chance but we'll see.

Assuming the empty emerge completes successfully I'll do a depclean and then try adding KDE back in, like tomorrow at the earliest.

Thanks!

Just following up to close the thread.

Hand removing all of KDE, vlc, libreoffice-bin and a couple more things allowed the machine to rebuild as if empty:

emerge -e --keep-going @world

I was then able to reinstall KDE and the other apps. The machine now appears up-to-date.

Cheers,
Mark

A case of the long road being shorter! Good show.

BTW - as an end-user type I didn't know about all the options you showed in the command:

emerge -av --backtrack=300 =dev-qt/qtwebkit-5.6.1:5/5.6::gentoo # Current stable

but man 5 ebuild sheds some light. Thanks for the clue. I'll keep that in mind should I run into a problem like this in the future.

Cheers
