Unlikely that has anything to do with your current issue.
I would imagine that some registry value has changed - either one that was
changed for the purpose of the patch you are being told you need OR one that
lets other things know that the patch is already installed/applied.
Does that suck? Well - that's a matter of opinion. Most people wouldn't
have .NET Framework 3.5 installed - so if they do have it right now, they
are probably a little *more* than your average computer user and can
supposedly handle the work-around of installing (or attempting to install)
an update manually to keep from being annoyed by a message they are fairly
certain they should not be getting.
The world (and everything in it) is not perfect. We either let the small
stuff bother us - or we don't. ;-)
