I'm not sure of the details, but the route of the problem traces back
to this

where you changed the version number from 1.13.0 to 1.12.2. Packages
in the development branch are intended to have odd-numbered 'minor'
numbers, so 1.13.0 is correct for a development branch package, 1.12.2
incorrect. The second thing is of course that the version numbering
has gone backward, so that your newest package has a version number
less than your older package. The build system appears to push only
the 'latest' source version of the package, but doesn't perform the
same check for the binary versions.

The solution on your end is to change the version number of SIM to,
e.g., 1.13.1 (unless 1.13.1 has existed in the past).
