Default 6.4 i386 pkg_add -n -u

Hello everyone,

My first post. New to OpenBSD, using it since 5.7.

I'm not sure what mailing list to send this to so i'm posting it here.

Upgraded the os, ran pkg_add -n -u to test before
updating and it's as if it weren't going to update the packages correctly. This happened
on two different computers. When you run pkg_add -u
(without the -n) it works correctly, everything is updated.

Default man pkg_add

"-n Don't actually install a package, just report the steps that would be taken if it was. Will still copy packages to PKG_CACHE if applicable."
