Not quite. If Andrea did not heed the warning that the ssc command should be used, and downloaded ivreg2 previously with a web browser, she might have put it in ~/ado/personal.

. adopath
[1] (UPDATES) "/Applications/Stata/ado/updates/"
[2] (BASE) "/Applications/Stata/ado/base/"
[3] (SITE) "/Applications/Stata/ado/site/"
[4] "."
[5] (PERSONAL) "~/ado/personal/"
[6] (PLUS) "~/ado/plus/"
[7] (OLDPLACE) "~/ado/"

Since 5 beats 6, updating ~/ado/plus with the SSC command will leave you with a new version in that directory, occluded by an older version in ~/ado/personal. I have often been bitten by this myself.

"which ivreg2" is always a good way to find where the current routine lives.

This appearance is surprising, as

. ssc inst ivreg2, replace

would use the syntax designed for the purpose.

It seemed that the only way in which I was able to replace
the older version
was to first delete the previous version of ivreg2 (2.0.0)
from my hard drive...
