Sorry - i gave slightly misleading info in my post. I actually ended up
with additional packages to upgrade, and i successfully upgraded them.
Perhaps it was just coincidental timing.
Did you know? Most email-borne viruses use a false sender address.
Therefore you cannot track down the sender using that address. Instead,
keep your virus scanning software up-to-date and just delete any
suspicious emails you receive.
