Can't update system- unresolved dependencies


I can’t update my system today with xbps-install -Su due to broken dependencies. Getting this error:

MISSING: rpi-userland>=

not sure to what which package this is a dependency. Any way i can troubleshoot and fix this?

X86_64 xbps-install not working: "rpi-userland" package missing

You can find out what packages depend on a package called “packagename” with

xbps-query -X packagename


got the output of which packages are due to update. It seems the new version of opera is requiring this dependency which obviously is broken. Will open this issue.

I have an open PR to fix this at https://github.com/voidlinux/void-packages/pull/7353

Hi rGabiru! I’m collided with the same problem. Before maintainers fix this bug, I do that:

  1. xbps-remove opera
  2. xbps-install -Su
    If you hard linked with opera

git clone https://github.com/voidlinux/void-packages.git
cd void-packages
./xbps-src binary-bootstrap
sed -i ‘/libGLESv2.so rpi-userland-’ common/shlibs
./xbps-src pkg opera
sudo xbps-install --repository=hostdir/binpkgs/nonfree opera
or you can install from my repository

i am having the same issue.

i do not have opera installed. i am using firefox


sudo xbps-query -x rpi-userland

does not return anything

How to solve this issue ?


Find the reverse dependencies for a package (packages that depend on it):
Big X switch is for reverse dependencies

sudo xbps-query -X  < unresolved dependencies packagename >

Removing the reverse dependency will resolve the problem.
After the update you can reinstall the package if needed.

New Void user here. Very pleased with Void, one thing so far I can’t seem to resolve.
Still can’t install Opera. Will there be a fix soon?
Installing from terminal I get this MISSING: rpi-userland>=
and OctoXbps says “the package is not available in database”.


Well, Opera is not available. You could ask for it but, I doupt it will be added. What’s wrong with Firefox, chromium, IceCat, chrome,…


It forces me too use something I don’t use. Freedom of choice is the reason I am here.
And Opera is just my favourite browser.


Fair enough, I do understand!


:rat: :hammer: :smirk_cat:

Brutal, but that works!!
I updated opera to the latest version #8855.
