Thanks Jim. Very useful guide - used it to upgrade our server to 8.0.4
(7.x.x would've been fine generally but I wanted the new ALTER COLUMN
... ALTER TABLE ... TYPE command). Seems --nodeps was the missing flag
needed to install the packages without complaining about dependencies.

Stand before it and there is no beginning.
Follow it and there is no end.
Stay with the ancient Tao,
Move with the present.
