Update of bug #61427 (project wget):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:


This is expected behaviour. If you're using Wget to mirror a directory, you
should try using the --mirror option which sets multiple correct options

In your particular case, you asked for no-clobber. This means Wget will not
replace the original file in case it was changed. Thus the index.html or
whichever file links to the new file will not be updated on disk. As a result,
Wget doesn't know of the existence of the new file and won't download it.

Do you really need -nc when running with -r? What is your usecase?
