It is going to take quite a long time to do the full upgrade. I'll let you know how it goes in an hour or two's time!

At the moment, it looks promising!

Many thanks!

I have updated my systems myself the problem is just glibc and then checking gpg. an initial manual update to glibc solved this problem.

The upgrade seems to have finally gone through OK, though my estimate of a couple of hours was some way off! It finally finished around 2100 (started at 1630!). I think it would have been quicker to re-install from scratch!

Funny thing is that I had previously upgraded glibc (at your suggestion), updated gpg and slackpkg and it still didn't work. This last time it did! One of life's mysteries, I guess!

Anyway, all sorted now! Many thanks for your help!
