I am running  spamassassin-3.2.5-1 on qmail server.

When I tried to run sa-update ,   I do not  see any changes on any file
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.002005/updates_spamassassin_org

and the date also does not change, The only place the date gets changed is

/etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-update-keys

Is it because the version is old(spamassassin-3.2.5-1) and it does not get upated?
I tried to build rpm from spamassassin-3.3.2 also, but could not build the rpm from tar ball.

Any help on this is appreciated.
Thanks

Yes, i can try that.  But is there any reason why the sa-update does not updates any thing
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.002005/updates_spamassassin_org

for my current version
spamassassin-3.2.5-1

Thanks
