Topic: Issues Installing updates Absolute 64 Bit

Hello,
I am having issues with three of the 12/22/16 updates:

slackware64/xap/libreoffice-5.2.4_en_US-x86_64-1AL.txz
slackware64/a/etc-14.2.2-x86_64-1bAL.txz

Error message is: Failed to download etc: FTP: couldn't retrieve (RETR failed) the specified file

Same with me.   Hopefully, it will get repaired.

If different, adjust GSlapt's download mirror to read ftp://ftp.slackware.org.uk/absolute/

Hello,

I am getting errors on both of the sources listed in the "Getting Started" page.

Both say package sources are unavailable: ftp://ftp.absolutelinux.org/ and  ftp://ftp.slackware.org.uk/absolute/

I will try back later.

Try http://slackware.uk/absolute/

I am still not able to get the updates to run on any of the repository links.
However, I can go to a web browser and all of the mirrors seem to be working.
Is there another folder that needs to added to the end of the link to drill down where the updates are kept?
