I think you may have misunderstood the purpose of my post.  The purpose
of my post was not to suggest a method of coaxing hidden updates out of
a mirror which did not seem to offer any.  The poster identified by
"S.D.A" was complaining of an excessive number of pending updates and
was wondering if something was wrong.  The purpose of my post was to
suggest a method for canceling all pending updates (which may have been
left over from some previous unintended actions) and then to search anew
for legitimate ones.
