 I am a WordPress user on WP package hosted by IONOS 1and1 UK.
 My WP was automatically updated to Version 5.5.
 My web site is running well.
 BUT when I log on to my WP-Admin I am shown the following:

 If I click on the WP Logo on the top left of the screen I get
 "WordPress 5.4.2 is available! Please update now.
 Speed. Search. Security.
 What’s New Credits Freedoms Privacy
 Welcome to WordPress 5.5.

 If I click on Dashboard Updates(which shows 1 Update pending) I get
 "An updated version of WordPress is available.
 You can update to WordPress 5.4.2–en_GB automatically:

 This localised version contains both the translation and various other
 localisation fixes.

 You can update to WordPress 5.5.1–en_US automatically:

 While your site is being updated, it will be in maintenance mode. As soon
 as your updates are complete, this mode will be deactivated.
 etc. "

 Why am I getting advised to "update" (or downgrade) from 5.5 to 5.4.2?
