The same program (or programs with the same name) can often be found
at multiple locations, e.g. SJ and SSC. adoupdate will update
whichever version you installed. It doesn't know that the SSC
version is more current than the SJ version. Even if it did know
that a program called ivreg2 was in multiple locations, I don't think
you'd want it deciding for itself to install from a different
location than you did - after all, there could be two totally
different programs with the same name.
Personally, if -findit- yields multiple hits, I go with the SSC
version, unless I know for a fact that a more current version is
available elsewhere. (One exception: the -fitstat- on SSC is less
current than the version that can be found on J. Scott Long's
My guess is that the best thing to do is uninstall the st0030_2
package; and then install the individual programs that were part of
it (ivreg2, ivendog, etc.) from SSC.
