There are known problems regarding updating the initial version of Stata 8.0 (e.g. see also the searchable 
archives at

However, as your version shows version 8.0, it suggests that you maybe missed out the 
-update swap- step which updates the executable.  This would result in any ado files 
that were updated to version 8.2 from complaining about the version.
