There's a dependency between the GHC version and the base library
version, each GHC comes with its own base library.

In the case of base- you are using GHC 8.0.1, which is the
latest and quite new compiler version, so most likely some of
your dependencies just don't support GHC 8.0.1 yet.

For now it might be easier to stick with GHC 7.10, until more
libraries are updated.
