Question Slackpkg do not want to upgrade on a raspberry pi


Hello

I just installed Slackware on my RPi. After configuring a mirror for slackpkg, I ran `slackpkg update gpg` then `slackpkg update`, but when I tried `slackpkg upgrade` I got "The package list is missing".

I don't understand what I did wrong. I tried another mirror, same result.

Any ideas?

Did you try the following commands... as shown?

Code:
~# slackpkg update
~# slackpkg install-new
~# slackpkg upgrade-all
If you need any help with slackpkg, try...

Code:
~# man slackpkg

That is exactly what I did before and 30 seconds ago after a reboot.

Is the time/date accurate on your Slackware ARM system?

Il n'y a pas de quoi.

"Think nothing of it." or "Don't mention it."

Chaque fois que vous redémarrez le RPi3, si l'heure ne sont pas précises, vous aurez des problèmes. Rappelez-vous ceci.

"Whenever you restart the RPi3, if the time is not accurate, you will have problems. Remember that."

If any non-French speakers are reading the post above, it translates as:

------------
My pleasure.

Each time that you reboot the RPi3, if the time isn't correct then you will have problems. Remember that.

Sure. Just imagine how frustrating it must be for all those non-English speaking visitors to LQ who struggle to understand and/or interact because of their limitations with the language.

Fortunately, Linux has no language barrier. Especially Slackware. Even Slackware Docs is multilingual!

Speaking to someone in their own language is considerate and respectful. Which is what I thought LQ strived to promote (and enforce on occasion). Now you're telling me it's an English-only club. [Do I need to be white-Caucasian, middle class, and a Republican too? lol]

"keeping things in English maximises accessibility for all those reading it in the future" is all well and good but *only* valid for those individuals who understand English.

Google translate is only a few clicks away.

And that, imo, is a good rule given the number of people who will read LQ's threads in the future.

The question and the answer are in English, isn't it the more important?
