I'm new to Slackware (been running Ubuntu for awhile but wanted to really start and understand Linux). The question I have pertains to updates - I know there's been a ton of questions asked on this but I'll tell you where I'm currently at. I've subscribed to the slackware-security
mailing list and received an email pertaining to a security update. However, after commenting out a mirror in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and running the following commands, I get no indication that any packages have updates available.
I thought at first the update just wasn't available yet since maybe the mailing list was the first to be notified before it was actually released. But I've waited a day or so and am still not seeing any updates as being available. I know I can update the package through the upgradepkg
command but would rather use slackpkg after researching a bit. Can anyone provide information as to why I'm not seeing the update when using slackpkg
? Or do I still need to wait a day or so before it shows up? I also find it strange that there aren't any updates period when I run slackpkg
. I would have thought there had been some since the release of 13.0 back in August. Any help on this topic is appreciated.
