In a word, neither.
Similar problems have often affected me -- and did affect
me this update. I think the issue arises from caching
(?cacheing) somewhere between your server and Stata Corp.
Some cache is storing files and making a guess that the file
you first asked for, tacitly, is in fact an older version of that
file. For example, UK universities
are linked up to JANET http://www.ukerna.ac.uk/ which does
a lot of this, all with the good idea of reducing traffic
and saving costs.
The remedy is brute force. No, sensible force:
. update ado, force
. update executable, force
You will probably get some updated .ado etc. you
got before, but no problem.
