Your explanation of the problem is clear; you misunderstood the advice
you were given.

Bert wanted you to check your version of the *VM*, not the *image*.
They have very similar, but unrelated, version numbers.

If you downloaded Squeak from http://squeak.org/Download, the VM you
will have is probably 3.9.

Try going to http://www.squeakvm.org/unix/ to get the very latest VM
as Bert recommended.
