slackpkg upgrade-all does not show an upgrade


I'm running slackware-current. The mirrors for slackpkg are configured correctly.
I've just received an email from the slackware mailing list that there's an upgrade for firefox available so I ran:
Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
The last command showed the possibility of upgrading PyQT and Sip packages, however, no firefox.
I double checked my firefox version:
Code:
firefox --v
Mozilla Firefox 3.5.3, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2009 mozilla.org
I also tried (with no effect):
Code:
slackpkg upgrade firefox
and the one that has just become available is 3.5.4.

I'm dowloading it manually now. Why wasn't it shown it slackpkg upgrade-all?

Thank you

I think the rsync is scheduled for (much) later tonight.

Firefox 3.5.4 was just released this evening so it should show up on the mirrors tomorrow.

Code:
Mon Nov  2 20:41:16 UTC 2009
xap/mozilla-firefox-3.5.4-i686-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Upgraded to firefox-3.5.4.
  This fixes some security issues.
  For more information, see:

  (* Security fix *)

The updates don't show up on all the mirrors at the same time. Don't panic!

Thanks guys. I forgot that my slackpkg is synchronised with a local UK mirror.
Nevertheless, as I'm exercising my insomnia and can't wait to 'try out' the NEW version of FF, I'm going to upgrade it manually, LOL.

I changed recently from a UK mirror (mirrorservice) to a US (tds) because of a 2 or 3 day delay in getting updates.
