Re: make update failing with "a different version ... is already installed"

How about apply the following patch?
I feel that even if USE_DESTDIR=yes, target based DEPENDS_TARGET
setting should be preferred.
(and replace-destdir target should be fixed, because if
DEPENDS_TARGET=replace and depending packages
is not installed yet, it will not work as expected).
Do you mean:
when doing update, and the dependency already exists, then
DEPENDS_TARGET should be forced to replace?
No, please read around the patch.
If DEPENDS_TARGET is set manually, it will do nothing.
When updating a package without DEPENDS_TARGET...
With USE_DESTDIR != yes, sufficient variable (UPDATE_TARGET) will be set to
and dependency package will also be update if it is not sufficient version or
But with USE_DESTDIR=yes, `package-install` will be always set to
and always fail to update if dependency package is already installed but old.
I feel that it is regression after switched to USE_DESTDIR=yes by default.
Additionally, DEPENDS_TARGET=replace will not work if dependency packages is
It is because `pkg_add -U PACKAGE' will fail if the PACKAGE is not installed.
I feel it is also regression.
