Actually, it should not suggest an upgrade in this case, because the
currently installed version is higher than the highest available one
(package-menu--find-upgrades).

Currently, that method ignores priorities, though, as it uses an
entirely different way of looking up the available packages. I'll
provide a fixed patch.
