SharePoint 2013 Cumulative Update Error - The expected version of the product was not found on the system

I got this error while I was trying to install the Cumulative Updates August 2013. The reason for this error is that the baseline for all updates is the first Cumulative Update in March.

I checked my build version of the farm

and found out that I've installed the RTM version.

If this doesn't solve your problem you can try to start the ubersrv2013-kbxxxxxx-fullfile-x64-glb.exe with the parameter PACKAGE.BYPASS.DETECTION.CHECK=1 like:

ubersrv2013-kbxxxxxx-fullfile-x64-glb.exe PACKAGE.BYPASS.DETECTION.CHECK=1

( Do not forget to start the command as farm administrator )

This bypassed all checks so that you can force the installation.
