Oops, I forgot to revert the 'mcupdate' script to an earlier, simpler
version, one that does not replace subdirectories of ~mcidas/mcidas<version>.
I just made the editing change to the script in the Downloads area.  Sorry!

Phew!  There shouldn't be as this is the standard way of installing...

This is very strange indeed.  I tested the IMGCOPY and IMGDISP of
each FD band yesterday with _no_ problems.

I'm with you on the banging of head on desk!  I don't have any idea
what could be causing your white backgrounds and MCSTRETCH failures!!

Me neither, but I didn't feel like this was of any consequence.  Hmm...
it could be that the order of the available calibrations in the calibration
module are different than the order that the comment cards are built
in the SCMI ADIR server.  I'll check this out today before I dive into
incorporating SSEC's XCD 2017.2 mods into my release (which will result
in a Unidata v2017b release).

re:

Getting IMGPROBE to work/work correctly is what I was beating my head
against yesterday and the day before.  Yesterday is when I found
the BONEHEAD mistake in the SCMI calibration module, sigh!

I'll touch base with Ryan about this.

I'll pass this along to Ryan also.

OK, thanks.  And, many apologies for the problems I have inadvertently
thrown your way!  I have to add, however, that your testing has helped
me immensely!  SSEC developers have the advantage that they have a set
of testers that stress test new developments and report any strangeness
back to the developer toute de suite.

Cheers,

Tom
