If I say

adoupdate ivreg2

(which does not need updating) it places ivreg2 in r(pkglist).

What is the nature of the problem?
But the help for adoupdate says

"adoupdate saves in r(pkglist) a space-separated list of package names that need updating (option update not specified) or that were updated (option update specified)."

So if ivreg2 does not need updating, why is it showing up in r(pkglist)? It sounds like a bug to me, but maybe I misunderstand something.

If I just do adoupdate, r(pkglist) does contain only the packages that need updating. But if you specify a package name, r(pkglist) includes whatever package name you specified, whether it needs updating or not.
