Unfortunately this only returns

]FindPackage Atool
Downloading updated remote lists... -
Loading lists... \

>] GetAvailable --type=official_package
>should print a lot of official packages available (~750 lines)

this also only returns

]GetAvailable --type=official_package
Downloading updated remote lists... /
Loading lists... \

This appeared to complete successfully

>BTW, do you have wget installed?

Yes, here is the version information 

]wget -V

Are there any other commands which can be run to determine why
FindPackage and
GetAvailable appear to do nothing and InstallPackage fails?
