vSphere 4 build number mismatch

I was trying to determine if I had a specific patch installed (ESX400-200912401-BG), so I first check the vCenter Update Manager. It said my vSphere server was build number 244038 and that the patch was installed. When I log into the vSphere server directly I get this:

-bash-3.2# esxupdate query

The build numbers are complete different and the vSphere server doesn't think that the newer patches have been installed. I've tried rebooting and removing/re-adding the server to vCenter but the issue is still there.
