Hi Damyon,

The download link that you are taken to from my screen shot in the first post is

If you extract this to an empty directory, the version file contains the following:

* This file defines the current version of the core Moodle code being used.
* This is compared against the values stored in the database to determine
* whether upgrades should be performed (see lib/db/*.php)
* @package core
* @copyright 1999 onwards Martin Dougiamas (
* @license GNU GPL v3 or later

defined('MOODLE_INTERNAL') || die();

$version = 2012120302.03; // 20121203 = branching date YYYYMMDD - do not modify!
// RR = release increments - 00 in DEV branches
// .XX = incremental changes

$release = '2.4.2+ (Build: 20130315)'; // Human-friendly version name

$branch = '24'; // this version's branch
$maturity = MATURITY_STABLE; // this version's maturity level


When I do directly to the downloads section of I do not have this problem.
