We're investigating this issue and will have a solution that will prevent the
update flag from getting out of sync with Stata's true update status from
happening in the future. For now, you can do an -update executable, force-
(and possibly -update ado, force-) to force the flag to be reset.
This issue doesn't affect Stata's functionality other than to be a possible
annoyance to the user. It is not necessary to reinstall Stata. As a matter
of fact, it won't help at all because the update flag is stored in your
preferences which is independent of Stata's installation directory.
