question about upgradepkg on slackware 9.1


hey.... i have been trying upgradepkg on my system latly...and everytime i do it i type upgradepkg newpackage .... and it goes through the steps then all of a sudden i get this...

Removing package /var/log/packages/wget-1.9.1-i486-1.tgz-upgraded-2004-01-29,23:11:41...

Cannot install ./wget-1.9.1-i486-1.tgz: package does not end in .tgz
Package wget-1.8.2-i386-2 upgraded with new package ./wget-1.9.1-i486-1.tgz.

but the new package does end in tgz.... so what am i doing wrong?

and it deletes both old and new package off my system totally...

I've had the same thing happen several times on different packages. To tell you the truth, try loading up the pkgtool little text based install and try it that way, or just simply uninstall the old package, then install the newer update, just a step longer.

Anytime there is an error in the package name you will get the
message - does not end in .tgz
I wonder about the ./ .
