The value displayed in 'Inst Ver' *always* originates from the rpm database.
If you change the status of a package (install, uninstall, apply a patch,
upgrade or downgrade) the number displayed in 'Inst Ver' changes accordingly.

The value displayed in 'Avail Ver' *always* originates from your defined
installation sources. If you have ten sources defined carrying three
different versions of a package, the *newest* version available across all of
your sources will be displayed in 'Avail Ver'
