I attempted to update the software using portsnap and four hours
later, I was still waiting, so I aborted it and powered it off.  I ran
them separately, fetch, extract (which took an hour and a half!) and
then update.  I got tired of waiting. 

But I submitted a request prior to all this, to add the current plugins
to AppCafe, so hopefully it will be able to help someone else out.

Thanks for the reply.
