Thank you for the article. I went looking and had a 6. and two 7. releases of the haskell platform and a bunch of locally installed things that it turns out were migrated poorly.
It would be nice if 'cabal upgrade' worked and was not deprecated. Also, installing a new haskell platform could comment on the fact that it is leaving a bunch of old most likely garbage behind and how to resolve it. Tonight I just did not bother and wiped Haskell completely and reinstalled.
