[opam-devel] opam reinstall behaviour surprisingly different than opam remove/install

This kind of thing could happen if your original state happened to be inconsistent ; so opam would have tried to "fix" it.

It would help understand if you could give the outputs of:
- opam config report
- opam upgrade --fixup --show
and the cudf files generated by your `reinstall` command with parameter --cudf ?
