Ok So I'm having the issue where I've installed the current version of a program but on a different source for what ever reason tells me that an older version of the program is an update. is there a file i can alter or a date stamp in an info file i can change so it shows the program i have as the newest version?
I have 9 program update waiting and none of them are the current version.
This might have been address but i can't find it.

Usually they'll begin to disappear after a few days - as your sources update their repositories.
You may want to check out the source of these "old" updates and decide if you really need them. Some of the foreign language sources don't update as fast as others.

In other words, if theres an app called "X" that you want to be up to date, and "X" was created and placed on a specific source by Umbooboo, but you can find the app on like 30 diff sources, be sure to add app "X" only from the source Umbooboo placed it on, to your source you created in iappcat, and you should be good to go.- iPhone 8gig and 16gig 3G - 3.0 - JailBroken + Unlocked to T-Mobile Unlimited Plan & Total Internet Plan.

One way I learned to stop this from happening in the first place was to limit the number of sources in Installer, which limits dupes from multiple repositories.
I have wanted keep versions as well, so I edited the LocalPackages.plist (in 1.1.4 it's in /var/mobile/Library/Installer/) with Property List Editor by changing the version number. It was a guess, it seemed simple enough, and it has worked to this point.
As to the wisdom of changing the version number manually, I don't know...
