FYI, I noticed that

>> pkg update

Errors out completely if a package has a version dependency , even if that package is in the list to be updated but the order is such that the wrong one was tried first.

This is currently the case with the windows 4.0.0 installer, where I had been advising people run the build_packages.m script followed by a 'pkg update' since their all pretty old.  My guess is that's what Jon was doing.

Maybe working past that is something pkg should be able to do?
