I had a similar symptom.
I switched from "Install from Internet" to "Install from Local 
Directory", and the package list showed the right packages, but the 
wrong version numbers, either the version numbers from the previous 
downloaded setup.ini or from the locally installed packages. Not from my 
updated local one.
The second attempt with local install showed the correct versions.

My problem was probably just a read-only /etc/setup/last-cache. Wrong ACL.

Hmm, that's me. This setup.hint just misses the "curr:" as in most new 
postgresql hints. Strange.
