This is the expected behavior for a standard install. If you want to
keep versions other than the one you're installing, than you need to
choose a custom install.

I doubt strongly that 3.2.10 was identifying itself as some other
version. I suspect that what you did was try to run 3.2.10 when 3.2.9
was already running. You can't have two instances of the module manager
running at once.
