This is not an irrelevant message:

asn1-parse-0.9.0 (reinstall) changes: text- added

It's an indication that things are about to go very wrong, as indeed they
did. In fact, the errors you got indicate quite a lot of problems with your
Haskell installation; you apparently have a bunch of broken packages.
