#13719 closed enhancement (fixed)

Problematic auto-uninstall

Reported by: khalsah@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone: MacPorts 1.7.0
Component: base Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc: jmroot (Joshua Root)


When performing a:

port -uc upgrade outdated

The whole process will likely screw up because if a outdated port can't be uninstalled because of deps the new version won't get installed or activated. This leads to other libraries being built on the outdated version making it even harder to get the outdated ports removed. The -u flag should either wait till the end to remove outdated ports or at least still install the new port even if the old one can't be uninstalled. In fact, shouldn't it try to uninstall the old one AFTER installing the new one?
