That's a slackpkg thing that can catch folks unaware. It might be a good idea
to blacklist slackpkg and update it manually. Whenever slackpkg is updated the
update process will stop and you need to check your slackpkg config and restart
the update process.

In my own case when slackpkg was updated it depended on glibc 2.33 which hadn't
been downloaded or installed and slackpkg would not run so I had to grab 3
glibc packages from the mirror and upgrade those packages with upgradepkg. Once
I did that and checked my slackpkg.conf the upgrade proceeded as expected.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
