So then in terms of security patching both branches are equal?

Yes, but -stable normally keep the same major version, while -current may move to a new major version

I normally pick "K" to keep the old version and review the changes between the old and new version first. Next i merged all the changes and finally reboot.

well, here's what i used
Code:
find /etc -name "*.new"
after that, i reviewed the differences using diff <old-file> <new-file> and make appropriate changes and merge them

slackpkg supports diff / merge of the old / new config files:
Code:
(P)rompt K, O, R selection for every single file
It asks for each new file to choose an action: remove, keep, merge, diff.

For ordinary users, most likely bad download (either from our side to a mirror server, or from a mirror to another while rsync process). Unless, someone is very interested with your machine and makes an extra effort to be a MITM.

The easy way to solve is switching to another mirror.

What u talking about im the most intersting man in the world! Stay thirsty my friend 🤣
Ok lets get serious, I was curious could u tell me if those bad md5sum packages got installed i would say no but i would like to confirm with someone also i read it could be bc i switched from current, back to stable and back to current 😁 I dont think im supposed to do that so what i did was just
Code:
slackpkg gpg
slackpkg update ( i had to this command otherwise i coudnt do the command below
slackpkg reinstall slackware64
At the end i didnt get any md5sum errors but my system is still unstable ☹️ Any more sugestions?

Please define the instability first. A feeling is often clouded by misjudgement.
Perhaps by the name -current itself, is not -stable.

Install anew Slackware64-14.2.

Rationale: Slackware-current is not a "branch" but a preview of what will eventually become the next stable version of Slackware, only provided for testing purposes. If I understand well what you need is stability and security, and you are not (yet?) ready to deal with the hassle of updating your system often and occasional instability that can result of updates in -current, so I fail see what benefit you can get running -current over -stable.

My instability would be jusr like my firts post:
1. How can it be that i run a antivirus scan one day and it takes less than an hour but the next day after 5hrs it can not complete it, when it took this long i was not even on the computer
2. When i press the xfce start button and select internet or multimedia it take a moment to show the sub menus, but its not always, sometimes it responds fast,
3. From my picture from the first post why do i get all those character when ever i run netconfig or mkinit generator
4. It just feels sluggish compared to previous install in this machine, the only difference is i always used -stable but in this install i deceided to use -current
When ever this issues occur the cpu display only about 20% use ram is only at 1g out of 4, do u guys think it could be my ssd? If so how can i test it?
I dont mind doing a clean install all over again but it would be nice to find out whats wrong and learn from it, im not a linux powe user but like i said i dont know were to start looking, hence why i asked maybe someone locally can help me and teach a couple of things i dont expect free personal support but obviously im not rich either
