 Use `cabal install` not `cabal upgrade`. It does things like upgrade the
 `haskell98` package and you really don't want to do that.

 This is fixed in the next release in the sense that the upgrade command
 has been removed.

 The easiest solution is probably to `rm -r ~/.ghc/` to unregister all the
 packages in your per-user package db and start from fresh.
