Sbopkg and 14.2 repo


I upgraded sbopkg to 0.38.0, then ran rsync. It still synced with the 14.1 repo. I removed 0.38.0 and downloaded again, just in case. I also deleted everything to do with sbopkg before installing again. It still syncs with 14.1. Both sbopkg.conf and 40-sbo.repo point to 14.2

Am I missing something? Does the 14.2 repo not yet exist?

1. Run 'slackpkg new-config' to merge /etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf.new with /etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf.

2. ... or modify /etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf
Code:
-REPO_BRANCH=${REPO_BRANCH:-14.1}
+REPO_BRANCH=${REPO_BRANCH:-14.2}
3. ... or run sbopkg and select Utilities -> Repository -> 14.2 -> Yes to save /root/.sbopkg.conf.
This setting has precedence over /etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf. So if you use (1) or (2) than remove /root/.sbopkg.conf with old settings.

Here is what I do

Before changing REPO, as root delete /var/lib/sbopkg/*
After that you can use sbopkg - Utilities to change to a different REPO and then start sbopkg and sync

I remember modifying sbopkg.conf for 14.1. I installed the updated sbopkg and 14.2 was at the top. It just never went to it. Thanks guys - I am all square now!
