Thanks. I guess I'm still stuck.  I downloaded version 31.4 from:

But when I select "notmuch-0.31.4.tar" for the package-install-file, I  
get an error:
 Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

Would it not make sense to upgrade notmuch to 0.33.1 ?  Which I guess I would
have to do from source, which I haven't done before...
