I'm getting the following error when syncing emerge:
Code:

>>> Updating Portage cache:   14%
Failed cache update: app-text/expander-2.0.5 [Errno 13] Permission denied
100%


running update-eix causes the following error:
Code:

Reading cache for main tree: 016%cacheutils.cc:43 Can't open /var/cache/edb/dep/usr/portage/app-text/expander-2.0.5: Permission denied


i've looked into the directory, and there was no way accessing it (chmodding or chowning didn't work, as "Permission denied" also applies for root)

any solutions?

thanks in advance!

Did you use "etc-update" or "dispatch-conf" lately? And if you did, do you know which files you updated?
Seems like you overwrote a config-file that dealt with rights-managment.

so i ran etc-update but, stupidly, i don't remember which files were updated. :?

Seems like broken metadata cache. Please post any follow ups to https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-303214.html
