errors while running slackpkg upgrade-all in Slackware 14.0


in Slackware 14.0, I upgraded packages using slackpkg.
I ran "slackpkg update" before "slackpkg upgrade-all".
update process ran but at the end, I had the message that say "gpg is out of date".
(I have already run "slackpkg update gpg" since I configured slackpkg mirror last couple of weeks)

however, I could run "slackpkg upgrade-all" and upgraded some packages.

but at the end of upgrade process,
I had these messages:

Quote:
Some packages had new configuration files installed.
You have four choices:

(K)eep the old files and consider .new files later

(O)verwrite all old files with the new ones. The
old files will be stored with the suffix .orig

(R)emove all .new files

(P)rompt K, O, R selection for every single file

What do you want (K/O/R/P)?
K


==============================================================================
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
==============================================================================
One or more errors occurred while slackpkg was running:

mozilla-firefox-19.0.2-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: md5sum
mozilla-thunderbird-17.0.4esr-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: md5sum
seamonkey-2.16.2-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: md5sum
seamonkey-solibs-2.16.2-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: md5sum

==============================================================================
no problem with my system, everything is running normally.
I just wanna know what happened or what is happening with those packages failed to upgrade.

btw, I ran slackpkg update gpg since I configured slackpkg mirror last couple of weeks ago.

go into /etc/slackpkg/ and edit your mirror to another mirror those are failed md5dum checks.
I have only seen that a few times in my whole time with Slackware. what it says is the package you are downloading
does not matched the signed md5sum that it was uploaded with. this means it is a corrupt upload or a corrupt download.

I had similar issue just few days ago; i think the culprit was either that the server updated those packages since my last 'slackpkg update' or that i changed the mirror since the last update.
Try simple "slackpkg update" (NOT "slackpkg update gpg", AFAIK that doesn't update the repos).

Be honest I have changed mirrors many times since I clone my drives to other machines. and rarely do I ever update the gpg.
only time I do that is when slackpkg config feed back out put asks for it.

always just do slackpkg update minus the gpg. this syncs you with that repo.
gpg is a whole different thing

I changed mirror and ran "slackpkg update gpg" again and "slackpkg update".
and then ran "slackpkg upgrade-all". It works.

It upgraded packages which failed to upgrade before.

I don't know the culprit.
anyhow, I have run "slackpkg update gpg" two times.

also in the future, may be if it is needed...haha
