slackpkg upgrade...not upgrading :-(

I'm needing a clue. Fired up my slack -current laptop after a little holiday. The last upgrade I did took me to kernel Trying today, I'm getting errors about no matching packages etc. On one try, I got bison, kernel-headers for 2.6.33-smp and two other packages, but I'm not getting any of the significant number of other packages that have been upgraded since March 1/10 Clues please?

Guys, I'm running current. I know the order of things. I've got a mirror.

You should run `slackpkg install-new` before running `slackpkg upgrade-all`, at least when you're using -current. I'm not sure whether that would matter here, though.

Have you selected a mirror within /etc/slackpkg/mirrors file? In my slackpkg ChangeLog... there is no such kernel.
