I'm using my profile with a save.dat file.
Is it needed to update on always fresh mode?
I have tried as root user, in always fresh mode and as guest with my profile mode... and always the same issue.
Regarding my mirrors-ponce.txt file on /etc/usm/:
# List of ponce Slackware mirrors
# Structure: $VER/$ARCH
So it should work. That's why it's annoying!
And just now, with USM 3.1.9 and with my profile user:
root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -u all
alien was updated 155 seconds ago. Skipping.
salix was updated 135 seconds ago. Skipping.
slacky was updated 126 seconds ago. Skipping.
