Send email if Output is available

can anyone debug these lines

	cd /usr/local/scripts
	./build update
	./build versions | grep available
	if [ $? == 0 ]
		mail -s "update for server `hostname`" $EMAIL
		echo -e "$YELLOW No update $RESET"
	echo "Please press a key - Back to main menu . . ." ; read

but hit has lock after this line ./build versions | grep available
this script will run update file and then grep available package if need to update, then send an email to admin about this

Your logic is correct but change the syntax as if [ $? -eq 0 ]. We use == for string comparison.
