Subject Re: sa-update failing: SHA1 verification failed
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 13:46:18 GMT
Hi Mark,

Thanks very much - you were spot on! I had noticed the file there, but
didn't think it was unusual. But I've now deleted the file (along the the
associated .asc and .sha1 files which were also there), and sa-update now
works again.

Many thanks for your help.
