Details

If I download the installer from OSDN.net (https://osdn.net/projects/mingw/downloads/68260/mingw-get-setup.exe/), and run it, accepting the defaults, I end up with the MinGW Installation Manager GUI.

If I exit the Installation Manager without doing anything, and run:

    C:\MinGW\bin\mingw-get --version
I get:
    mingw-get version 0.6.3-pre-20170905-1
    [...]

If I run:

    C:\MinGW\bin\mingw-get update
    C:\MinGW\bin\mingw-get upgrade
and then run "C:\MinGW\bin\mingw-get --version" again, I get:
    mingw-get version 0.6.2-beta-20131004-1
    [...]

If before exiting the Installation Manager, I selected from the "Installation" menu "Update Catalogue", then "Mark All Upgrades", then "Apply Changes", version 0.6.2-beta-20131004-1 would get installed, as well.

Comment

Indeed, that doesn't seem correct, thank you. Sure enough, the online catalogue doesn't reflect the correct publication status, for mingw-get. I've just pushed a correction; give it up to an hour, to propagate to the mirrors, and it should then be correct.
