Meteor top-level dependencies were not updated

I just noticed something weird. Meteor update is failing to update.

I just created a new project with meteor create test181 and then ran meteor update --all-packages in that project and got the following.

Anybody knows what’s going on?

Your top-level dependencies are at their latest compatible versions.
The following top-level dependencies were not updated to the very latest version available:
 * ecmascript 0.12.7 (0.13.0 is available)    
 * mongo 1.6.3 (1.7.0 is available)           
 * standard-minifier-css 1.5.3 (1.5.4 is available)
 * standard-minifier-js 2.4.1 (2.5.0 is available)
Newer versions of the following indirect dependencies are available:
 * babel-compiler 7.3.4 (7.4.0 is available)  
 * babel-runtime 1.3.0 (1.4.0 is available)   
 * callback-hook 1.1.0 (1.2.0 is available)   
 * ecmascript-runtime-client 0.8.0 (0.9.0 is available)
 * ecmascript-runtime-server 0.7.1 (0.8.0 is available)
 * minifier-css 1.4.2 (1.4.3 is available)    
 * minifier-js 2.4.1 (2.5.0 is available)     
 * modules 0.13.0 (0.14.0 is available)       
 * modules-runtime 0.10.3 (0.11.0 is available)
 * npm-mongo 3.1.2 (3.2.0 is available)       
 * webapp 1.7.4 (1.7.5 is available)          
These versions may not be compatible with your project.
To update one or more of these packages to their latest
compatible versions, pass their names to `meteor update`,
or just run `meteor update --all-packages`.

I noticed the same thing when updating a project recently, which was a couple of releases behind. In my case it was because the specific app was updated to the most recent recommended version (1.8.1), while the script also found newer packages (available for 1.8.2). Try meteor update --release 1.8.2.

Yep. The most recent package versions are now for 1.8.2 which is now available but have not graduated to the default version, yet.
