No, that's no update. Only a date change for some reason. The images are 
still identical to the alpha1 release from February. One way to see that 
is to check the kernel version: it uses 2.6.30 instead of 2.6.32. Another 
is to check the /etc/lsb-release file or the versions of udebs listed 
in /var/lib/dpkg/status.

The error would *not* have occurred if you had used images based on D-I 
from sid.

If you look at http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/, you will see 
three sets of links:
- squeeze Alpha1 release (these are the ones you used)
- current weekly snapshot
- daily built images

The first is the old release I was talking about and will soon be replaced 
with the new release.
The second currently also still has the old version of pkgsel as weekly CD 
snapshots take udebs from testing and the current build is from last 
Monday (before the migrations of new versions done earlier today). The 
next build will use the new version (but is likely to be unusable because 
of the preparation for the new release which means that temporarily things 
from the old and new release will be mixed up and that is almost certain 
to cause breakage).
The third set are the images that have the lastest version of all installer 
components from unstable.

The page linked above is the only authoritative source for the various 
images available to install testing.
