 Okay, there are at least two bugs here:

 1) Tor Browser should not show that it is up-to-date
 2) Tor Browser should eventually update you to the latest stable release.

 2) is tricky as the keys we use nowadays are not working for pretty old
 Tor Browser releases anymore. So what we would need is an update over
 several Tor Browser versions until one finally reaches the current one.

 2) Might involve quite some work but I am not sure about 1). What do you
 think boklm?
