There is NO update for TL2009, from now and until the end of the Universe.
With TL2010 coming Total Rebuild (and it has been promised 2 days in
the row), probably tonight.
It was said that some version numbers will decrease and it was the
case last night with a bunch of the binaries but not regular packages.

But according to TL team the Total Rebuild is finally coming tonight.
So, there will be a lot of such messages that the local version is
newer than the remote one but True Believers should not be scared :-)
However True Believers also subscribe to tex-live at tug.org
