I'm a slack newb who just started using when 13.1 came out.
I Got this with slackpkg upgrade-all:

Connecting to (||:21... connected.

No such file "shadow-".

	ERROR - Package not installed! md5sum error!

One or more errors occurred while slackpkg was running:                       

shadow-	md5sum

Should I just change my mirror and run the update again?

Yes that's probably a good idea.
