I'm not sure why cabal has decided that it's best to reinstall a new
version of transformers, that seems very strange to me. You can probably
work around this by running:
cabal install errors --constraint 'transformers == 0.3.0.0'
I *would* recommend upgrading to GHC 7.8, as a number of packages have
stopped supporting 7.6.3. (For the record, I don't believe any of the
packages you have installed have dropped backwards compatibility.) And
generally, I recommend using Stackage to avoid these kinds of versioning
problems. There are instructions at:
Fair warning: I'm the primary Stackage maintainer.
