If you look at the log it appears that the older folders haven't removed (e.g., the expl3 package is in an expl3 folder rather than a l3kernel folder). I seem to remember that there was a problem for a short period of time where the old folders structure wasn't removed and the old files were being found and used.

Good Luck,
