Maybe you could post a full debug log from one of the machines where it 
obviously does not "update" properly and a full listing of the XML defining the 

Very likely WPKG does not execute the upgrade commands as it does not detect an 
upgrade - ie. this means the package was not installed in older revision on the 
nodes which do not "update" properly. If the package is "new" to a host, then 
WPKG executes the "install" commands, not "upgrade".

So please check the local wpkg.xml on the nodes which do not work properly. 
Maybe these machines got an earlier version of the package deployed. If the 
revision attribute has not been incremented since then WPKG will not perform an 
upgrade. So assuming you probably incremented the revision attribute before, 
then these hosts might have performed the upgrade already and now if you change 
the package on server side without incrementing the revision then WPKG will not 
re-execute the upgrade commands.
