Not very informative indeed.  bin/buildout -Nv in plonenext gives me
this more informative output instead:

  Installing instance.
Error: There is a version conflict.
We already have: Products.GenericSetup 1.4.1
but Products.CMFActionIcons 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.
but Products.CMFCalendar 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.
but Products.CMFCore 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.
but Products.CMFDefault 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.
but Products.CMFTopic 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.
but Products.CMFUid 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.
but Products.DCWorkflow 2.1.2-beta requires 'Products.GenericSetup==1.3.3'.

So the question is: why are those products depending on GS 1.3.3?  GS
1.4 has been out for a while.
