When I remove the repository from the webserver, it does give an error.
Did you bump the version number of the component you've updated? You 
have to do this in your package description file (e.g. package.xml) 
before calling repogen.

Does this mean if you do not change anything on the server and run 
updater, it will tell you there's an update? Or does it say there are no 
updates available?
