You are right. Looking to a backup made before trying to update/upgrade 
I see that in the mingw-runtime.xml present on my system the second line is:
<software-distribution project="MinGW" home="http://www.mingw.org"; 

while in the file downloaded from the web into my directory 
c:/mingw/var/lib/mingw-get/data after update the time stamp is correctly 
The old files present in my system in the .../packages directory, 
including the  dev dll lic man where downloaded on 19/07/2016

Now trying anew update and then upgrade, all seems to work correctly, 
instead of receiving a lot of error mesages, except for the following 
error messages in the middle of the process

upgrade: libquadmath-5.3.0-2-mingw32-dll-0.tar.xz

I do not understand what could be the consequences.
