Default Problem with eix-update

Hi all,

I haven't searched layman for packages in a long time (actually had to
google how to do it), and am getting an error I can't seem to solve...

problems arised with cachefile _var_lib_layman_zugaina.eix
* Calling eix-update...
* could not read all eix cachefiles of

Then finally:

Database contains 16219 packages in 155 categories.
* could not read all eix cachefiles of

Probably your eix cachefile was *not* updated successfully.
Unless the above messages suggest another cause or you specified a
wrong filename, the most likely cause of this is that the server uses
another eix version than you or produced broken data. Please inspect
whether this is a valid *.tar.bz2 archive containing eix cachefiles
(if it has already been deleted, download it using fetch).
If this is not the case (but was freshly downloaded), please report a bug.
Note that the archive is *not* broken if only the cachefile format
versions differ: In that case only report a bug if the eix cachefile
format versions in the downloaded file are *older* than that of the most
current ~x86 eix version in the portage tree (but first retry after
several days before reporting such a bug to give the server maintainers
a chance to upgrade after a version bump of eix).
Conversely, if the downloaded versions are even newer than that
supported by your eix, you will have to upgrade to the most current ~x86
version of eix to use eix-remote: This inconvenience cannot be avoided
and is not a bug!

Not sure what to do here or how things got hosed...
