slackpkg error?


I've got a 14.1 installation, but I wasn't the one who installed it, and I'm finding that I'm missing a lot of packages. I'd like to just install everything and be done with it. In the man page for slackpkg, it looks like there's a command for exactly my situation:
Quote:
install-new
This action installs any new packages that are added to the official Slackware package set. Run this if you are upgrading your system to another Slackware version or if you are using -current. If you want to install all uninstalled Slackware packages onto your system, use the following command instead of the install-new action:
# slackpkg install slackware.
However, when I try running that command, this is what I get:
Code:
# slackpkg install slackware.
Looking for slackware. in package list. Please wait... DONE
No packages match the pattern for install. Try:
/usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade 
#
I ran slackpkg update right before this.
Am I doing something wrong?

And, if I'd taken the time to search before posting, I might have found this thread: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...e-pkgs-807336/ which describes the same problem.

My problem was that I'm running Slackware64, so the command I wanted to run is
Code:
slackpkg install slackware64
