In any case, thanks to you I am able to browse and choose new mirrors.
As soon as I back up my home directory I will go back to netpkg upgrade and will upgrade my system. It has been a long time since I upgraded my system and I am willing to take that choice and its consequent risks after backing up my home directory.
