I just tried upgrading my work machine, cabal goes fine, but cabal-install:

[21 of 21] Compiling Main             ( ./Main.hs, dist\build\cabal\cabal-tmp/Ma
in.o )

    Couldn't match expected type `Distribution.Verbosity.Verbosity'
           against inferred type `Verbosity'
    In the first argument of `check', namely `(fromFlag verbosityFlag)'
    In a 'do' expression: allOk <- check (fromFlag verbosityFlag)
    In the expression:
        do (unless (null extraArgs))
         $ (do die
             $ ("'check' doesn't take any extra arguments: "
                (unwords extraArgs)))
         allOk <- check (fromFlag verbosityFlag)
         unless allOk exitFailure
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
cabal-install-0.4.6 failed during the building phase.
