The text you have quoted is the standard text GNU ELPA adds to every
package. However, package-install works only for not installed yet
packages. If you want to upgrade to a newer version, try

  M-x package-update RET tramp RET

If you like, you could report this as bug report to the ELPA maintainers

  M-x report-emacs-bug RET

Best regards, Michael.
