slackpkg upgrade-all fails


[edited for clarity]

slackpkg qpg works
slackpkg update works
slackpkg install-new works
slackpkg upgrade-all fails


Changing mirrors doesn't seem to help. Here is a short section snipped (thanks to that marvelous program "screen") from one "run" of slackpkg update-all:

Code:
    [  <=>                                                                                ] 2,071          5.97K/s

I suspect that there is not supposed to be a file named just ".asc". Presumably somehow slackpkg is failing to figure out correct filenames/URLs.

How do I fix this?

Strange. What slackpkg version do you have? Have you tried the latest in current?

Here's a snippet of one package upgrading:

It does save a .asc for each package but in yours there is no file name just an ext. I'm wondering if you have a corrupt /var/cache/packages/
