with -adoupdate- catching SJ Software Updates. If so, please report them
in the usual way with specific
evidence to Stata technical support.
With SJ, the problem is that the original package never gets updated, e.g. st0067 is always the same st0067. So, when authors send in a new version, it becomes st0067_1, then st0067_2, etc. As far as adoupdate is concerned, these are separate packages, not updates of the original. That is, SJ's practice of creating a new package, rather than updating the original package, is something that adoupdate is not designed to take care of. To avoid that, either

(a) the original package should get updated, using the original name, or
(b) adoupdate should be modified to give special treatment to SJ packages. So, if st0067 is installed, it could check to see if there is an st0067_1 or st0067_2 or whatever.
