Physics literature inconsistent on dark energy

In reading several articles on dark energy, I’ve encountered some that seem to suggest its ‘confirmation’ and others that suggest otherwise or uncertainty.  It’s status, as far as I’m concerned, is at the theoretical level.

There seems more agreement on dark matter, but there are physicists who do not subscribe to it. If supersymmetric (SUSY) particles do not show up at the Large Hadron Collider, then dark matter may be in trouble since many of its particles (called WIMPS) are conjectured to be of the SUSY kind. From what I’ve been reading, there’s growing doubt regarding supersymmetry today.
