I seem to recall someone already poked you on this matter, but I can't find a record of it, so maybe not...

The symptoms are pretty clear, the log indicates a successful recent build, but apparently the packages have not been built since Oct 27, so R-3.3-branch-mavericks.pkg contains the version from the and is actually older than the current release. (I checked the contents with pkgutils, and it is not just a labeling issue; the Payload files are time-stamped Oct 27 05:15)
