Comment (by hasufell):

 Replying to [comment:2 ciaranm]:
 > It's not about blockers at all. The issue is installed packages that
 aren't being changed, that are locking a subslot to its existing value. If
 you've got an installed package that isn't being upgraded that requires
 foo/bar-1.23, we won't upgrade foo/bar to 1.24.

 Sure, I know how they are recorded in the VDB. With blockers I meant
 "unsuitable candidates" warnings which cause you to fix it manually.

 So, especially if you want to update dev-lang/ghc you will get a shitload
 of these warnings since the subslot is $PV. In the case of ghc it even
 makes sense to use "-D", but that's not always the case and still requires
 you to read through all the error messages.
