Bug Description

The program thinks it is an older version than the version indicated in the package. Either the wrong code was packaged, or the version string was not updated to reflect the current version:

$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/usb-creator-gtk
usb-creator-gtk: /usr/bin/usb-creator-gtk

$ dpkg -l usb-creator-gtk
ii usb-creator-gt 0.2.62 amd64 create a startup disk using a CD

$ /usr/bin/usb-creator-gtk --version

Thanks for taking your time to report this issue and help making Ubuntu better.

I see the same difference with usb-creator-gtk (package-version) 0.2.62 on Ubuntu Vivid. Presumably there's an internal version number which hasn't been updated in sync with the package version number.
