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:

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:

firefox --v
Mozilla Firefox 3.5.3, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2009

I also tried (with no effect):

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.

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.
