Regression: "same version is already installed" on Linux .deb upgrades

Following up on this discussion...

The deb files for the 2022 releases had proper (major and minor) versioning inside the control file, but the two 2023 releases so far were both simply called "2023". This results in the installer saying that the same version is already installed. I would say that although they are both 2023, they are not in fact the same version, and the control file should reflect the specific build. Coupled with the very non-specific deb file naming, it's hard to tell just what we're going to end up with...

This had been a long-standing issue, it was fixed for the 2022 releases, but now is an unfortunate regression in the build process used to create the deb files. (I would still like to see better deb file naming that incorporates the build number, but getting the control file version right is the priority.)
