how to determine riak version

I'm pondering upgrading riak from 2.1.3 to 2.1.4 and got myself confused 
confirming that I really am running 2.1.3 at the moment.

I installed riak from here:

and all of this looks promising:

$ riak version

$ ls /usr/lib/riak/releases/

$ dpkg -l | grep riak
ii  riak 2.1.3-1      amd64        Riak is a distributed data store

but then there's also this:

$ sudo riak-admin status | grep riak_kv_version
riak_kv_version : <<"2.1.2-0-gf969bba">>

I really wanted riak_kv_version to say 2.1.3-<something>.

I'm clearly paranoid, but can someone help me feel better about this?

Thanks much.
