Updated inxi, have issue

I updated inxi due to a thread in another forum. Here's how I did it: First, opened "/etc/inxi.conf" as administrator and change the line B_ALLOW_UPDATE=false  -to-  B_ALLOW_UPDATE=true. Save and close the file. Then ran sudo inxi -U in terminal to update inxi to latest version. Here's the problem, when I look in Synaptic, it says my current version is still 2.3.5-1, but when I run inxi --version in the terminal it comes up to the latest. See screenshot. Why is Synaptic still showing the old version?

Your update bypassed the apt database. Synaptic looks at the database and not at the application.

Well, I have the latest SMPlayer installed via a .deb file, which I don't think is the most current offered by the database, and yet Synaptic shows it as installed. (Version 21.1.0+2.1) This is on Devuan 2.1.
