The installation succeedeed and GHC is working correctly.
But yes, "cabal haddock" seems to have some difficulty in the new version,
but I can't judge if it's my sandboxed environment (we use "hub" at work)
or the failure you mentioned.
Calling "haddock" alone works (using the previously installed on my
system), "cabal haddock" does not:
☁ mandrill [master] ⚡ haddock src/Network/API/Mandrill.hs
Warning: main:Network.API.Mandrill: Could not find documentation for
exported module: M
Warning: Couldn't find .haddock for export Control.Monad.IO.Class.liftIO
88% ( 7 / 8) in 'Network.API.Mandrill'
Warning: Network.API.Mandrill: could not find link destinations for:
Text.Email.Parser.EmailAddress Data.Text.Internal.Text Text.Blaze.Html.Html
☁ mandrill [master] ⚡ cabal haddock
cabal-22.214.171.124: You need to re-run the 'configure' command. The version of
Cabal being used has changed (was Cabal-126.96.36.199, now Cabal-188.8.131.52).
cabal haddock: /usr/hs/tools/cabal-184.108.40.206 failure (return code=1)

had to remove a haddock binary from ~/.cabal/bin before haddocks were
building correctly for me)
