I could imagine that there is nothing wrong with your system
configuration but that the build servers have not build the latest
versions of the packages yet.

My experience is very mixed in how much needs to be compiled when doing
a system upgrade.  In the future I'd like to use a central build server
in my local network (and then I'd probably mount /store over NFS).
