I have to fess up to trying to do something really dumb just now - I tried
to -ssc uninstall- it, forgetting that it was part of official Stata. How
I laughed.
I meant to uninstall the package that isn't working with adoupdate, e.g.

ado uninstall clarify

and then reinstall. This seems to work when you keep getting the message that the file needs to be updated, even though you just updated it 10 seconds ago. I don't know if it would work in this case. It won't work if you just manually copied the files onto you hard disk and did not use net install or its variants.

Yes, don't go uninstalling Stata itself for this!
