improve error messages when apk add is not able to resolve versioned dependencies
Create 3 packages: a-1.0, a-1.1 and b-1.0. Say that b-1.0 depends on
a=1.0. Try upgrade to a-1.1.
The error message you get is:
ERROR: Unable to install 'a': -1
and thats all. It can be very hard to track down why the upgrade fails if you have 10+ upgrading packages with varius versioned dependencies.
We need better error messages.
