Description

Hello,

I just did a 'sudo port selfupdate', and now I can't install any ports. Here is an example:

$ sudo port install pwlib
Error: Unable to execute port: wrong # args: should be "macports::_deptypes_for_target target"
To report a bug, see <http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets>
$

The selfupdate updated my version from 1.9.1 to 1.9.2. Here is the output when I run 'sudo port -v selfupdate' now:

$ sudo port selfupdate
--->  Updating the ports tree
--->  Updating MacPorts base sources using rsync
MacPorts base version 1.9.2 installed,
MacPorts base version 1.9.2 downloaded.
--->  MacPorts base is already the latest version

The ports tree has been updated. To upgrade your installed ports, you should run
  port upgrade outdated
$ 

When I try running 'sudo port -v upgrade outdated', I get this:

$ sudo port -v upgrade outdated
Error: Unable to exec port: wrong # args: should be "macports::_deptypes_for_target target"
To report a bug, see <http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets>
$ 

When I do it with a -d instead, I get a ton of stuff including this pertinent text:

DEBUG: Starting logging for gnome-common
DEBUG: wrong # args: should be "macports::_deptypes_for_target target"
    while executing
"macports::_deptypes_for_target $target $workername"
    (procedure "mportexec" line 17)
    invoked from within
"mportexec $workername activate"
Error: Unable to exec port: wrong # args: should be "macports::_deptypes_for_target target"
To report a bug, see <http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets>

It looks like $workername is being passed, and it's not expected. Is this something that changed in 1.9.2? Any idea how to fix or work around this? I'm running OS X 10.6.4.

Thanks, Stephen

I need to watch the progress on this one as I am unable to install something I need in order to keep working on a particular project. This is a blocker for me.

comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by thewolf167@…

Any attempt to install an older version of Macports ends up with 1.9.2 still installed, and the complete inability to install new software.

I am seeing the same issue. I completely uninstalled Macports after trying the upgrade, and it is still doing it.

Joshua fixed this in r73226, r73229, but did not increase the MacPorts version number, so I don't think "selfupdate" will notice it. Once it's posted, you should probably download the MacPorts 1.9.2 disk image from www.macports.org and install it; it will contain this fix.

sudo port -f selfupdate will do it.

Replying to jmr@…:

sudo port -f selfupdate will do it.

Confirming that that works. Thanks, folks!
