That is the way it works for non-test packages.

I'm not sure what mirror you're using but on mirror.mcs.anl.gov, bash
4.1.11 is the only version available for x64.


No, it does not.

I've compiled, and installed bash 4.2.45 for x64, and made appropriate
changes in the /etc directory, so, it is up on the list of the
installed packages. However, it keeps downgrading.
