This is interesting indeed. I have not operated from VE, XE, KL7 or KH6. But I have operated from DL, HB9, HB0, OE and OK. CEPT requires that the country of operation prefix your own call, so I have thousands of QSOs logged as DL/KD5KC for example.
In the several trips over, and the ensuing LoTW uploads and downloads, not once has this failed. The only point I can make from my observance is that a greater number of North American stations participate in LoTW than do European stations.
The only thing I can tell you about AC-Log is that your OWN CALL block on the LoTW page of AC-Log must match the call you are trying to download.
For example, if I want to download or check conformations using AC-Log, having KD5KC will only bring down my USA QSOs and confirmations. If I want the German confirmations, that block must be DL/KD5KC. And if I want the Liechtenstein conformations, it needs to be HB0/KD5KC.
If you are keeping separate logs (as I do), be certain you have the right log opened before you start playing. Otherwise it gets messy.
Hope this helps.

Your symptoms sound like a gotcha that bites me whenever I rove outside of the 48 states. You won’t see confirmations in ACLog, even though they are confirmed in LoTW, unless you put your call *with suffix* in the box labeled Own Call (optional) as shown in the attached picture.
I may not understand how this is supposed to work, but if you uploaded and signed the file with suffix like /KL7 or /150, the Own Call is *not* optional. My call is N9IP, but when I rove from Alaska or Canada, my certifications from LoTW are for N9IP/VY1, N9IP/VE6, N9IP/VE7, or N9IP/KL7. The screen shot shows N9IP/KL7.

That may be, but I suspect it's a problem with TQSL. I tried again to upload the contacts using the "/150" station location I got from ARRL and nothing happened. So just on a whim, I uploaded them again using the plain (not "/150") station location and they were accepted again, and this time all came back as being updated. Perhaps I set it up TQSL wrong.
