Ticket #569 (new defect)
Router will update to a version less than the latest
|Reported by:||zzz||Owned by:|
www.i2p2.i2p often does not have the latest .sud/su2 files,
Say versions X < Y < Z.
If a router is at version X and news says the latest is version Z, it will still download version Y and update to it first, if it's unlucky enough to pick an update host that has version Y but not Z.
This is because the update process just looks for a version > X.
Then the console won't even let you update again, because it gets a 304 from the news host so it says no update available. Even though the news section is declaring that version Z is available.
So not only did the user update to the wrong version but he can't get the latest until echelon edits the news again.
This is a bad user experience. Yes it would also be nice if all the update hosts always had the latest.
