I see what you mean. The #updateFromServer will load the missing packages
that caused the warnings, but it looks like you need to manually re-load
the latest VMMaker afterward in order to bring it up to date. After that,
the #updateFromServer should take care of future updates to any of these

If anyone knows how to fix this in the Monticello configuration, please
let me know. This was my first attempt at putting together a configuration
map, and I don't really know what I'm doing.

Thanks. I think Ian keeps copies of his build images for reference.
