Make sure that your .../pkg/repo/repo.conf file uses the $(ABI) token
rather than spelling out your OS ABI explicitly -- or else don't have
any version related parts to your repo path at all. Also, if your repo
is served via a web server, check your webserver config to make sure
your repo isn't pointed at an old set of packages.
