Applying update issue

Expected action is that under preferences, a check mark for auto update means when a new update is available go ahead add the update. However I have been getting the update notice several times a day and when I started to investigate, I noticed my MAC version running under the diagnose is ver. mac-v1.12.0-beta18-321-g46a382d and my ver. showing up in the ‘about Docker’ display is Version 1.12.0-rc3-beta19-master (build: 10116)

Actual behavior

Auto update popup occurs several times a day, and the version its notifying that me that there is an update for is the version I have running which is correct. I have tried to skip this update, ignore this update and apply the update, all with the same results that the update window keeps popping up on my Mac several times a day. I had to turn off the auto update preference in order to get the update reminder to stop. How can I get the update to apply?
