slackpkg can't udpate


I have a new Slackware64 install (from scratch, no upgrade) and I configured slackpkg in the mirrors file. I can run slackpkg update without any issues, but when I try slackpkg install-new or slackpkg upgrade-all I get the following messages:

Code:
# slackpkg install-new

grep: Invalid range end
Looking for NEW packages to install. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for install. Try:

	/usr/sbin/slackpkg upgrade|reinstall 

#
and

Code:
# slackpkg upgrade-all

hecking local integrity... DONE
grep: Invalid range end
grep: Invalid range end
Looking for packages to upgrade. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for upgrade. Try:

	/usr/sbin/slackpkg install|reinstall
it's the grep: Invalid range end message. In the mean time I just download the updates from the security alert emails and issue an upgradepkg xxxxx.txz

I even tried different mirrors with the same results.

Here's the slackpkg version info:

Code:
# slackpkg

slackpkg - version 2.81.1

Usage:
	slackpkg [OPTIONS] {install|remove|search|file-search|
			    upgrade|reinstall|blacklist} {PATTERN|FILE}
	slackpkg [OPTIONS] {generate-template|install-template|remove-template}
			   TEMPLATENAME
	slackpkg [OPTIONS] info PACKAGE
	slackpkg [OPTIONS] update [gpg]
	slackpkg [OPTIONS] {clean-system|upgrade-all|install-new}
	slackpkg [OPTIONS] {new-config|check-updates|help}

If you need more information try to use 'slackpkg help' or look the
slackpkg's manpage.
I'm using the generic kernel

Code:
# uname -a
Linux gonzo 3.2.29 #1 SMP Mon Sep 17 13:38:05 CDT 2012 x86_64 AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
Is there something in /etc/slackpkg.conf I need to change that you're suppose to do after an install?

I tried the UK repository as well (as you can see by the #http comment):
Code:
#http://mirror.lividpenguin.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/
With the same results.

You simply have to uncomment the mirror you want to use. Just remove the "#" sign
that the line starts with. In the file that you have posted everything is commented.

You must have missed the lines:

Code:
# UNITED STATES (US)
# ftp://carroll.aset.psu.edu/pub/.mirrors/2/ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/
http://carroll.aset.psu.edu/pub/.mirrors/2/ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/

# ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/.2/slackware/slackware64-14.0/
http://carroll.aset.psu.edu is un-commented.

I found the issue. It was a bad regex I had in the /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file. I traced the issue to the makelist function in /usr/libexec/slackpkg/core-functions.sh.

Thanks for all who helped!
