Question Firefox 3.63 is not found when using "slackpkg install"


Dear all,
I want to upgrade Firefox to 3.6.3 since according to Slackware 64 CHANGE LOG:
Code:
Mon Apr 5 03:06:19 UTC 2010
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.6.3-x86_64-1_slack13.0.txz: Upgraded.
       This fixes some security issues.
       For more information, see:
       http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox36.html
       (* Security fix *)
However when I do
Code:
slackpkg install firefox
and select the appropriate software in the menu, the scripts throw errors saying
Code:
mozila-firefox-3.6.2-...  : Not found
This happens when I use 4 different mirrors.

The latest version should be 3.6.3 instead of 3.6.2. But even so, the 3.6.2 version is not there. Should I keep looking for other mirror that has the available software or do I miss anything?

regards,
ethereal1m

Did you do 'slackpkg update' first? Maybe you need to check your mirror?

Yeah, do it the right way:
Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all
The last command will pop up a ncurses box listing updates.
