I got the exact same error. You probably have an old version of spost9_ado; when I updated mine the error went away. The fix was apparently made on Aug. 20th. J. Scott Long maintains these programs on his own site and unfortunately he doesn't include the distribution dates in his pkg file, hence adoupdate doesn't know when there have been changes. I've sent him a message about it.
Bowing to popular demand, J. Scott Long has now made his programs adoupdate-friendly. That should help avoid problems like this in the future.

Repeating a suggestion I made in some other thread, if you are going to offer programs from your own site, it is a very good idea to make the trivial tweaks (i.e. including the distribution dates in your pkg files) that will let your programs work with adoupdate. (Incidentally, I notice that several of my installed routines that do not follow this advice are from www.stata.com! e.g. the old Stataquest routines.)
