@jongio, based on the screen snapshot you provided, it appears at some point you installed the CLI using pip. CLI windows installer can only upgrade the one acquired through the installer and would not recognize the one through pip.
Specifically to pip, deleting the entry scripts of is not a complete uninstall as the bulk files would still be under c:\Python36\Lib\site-packages. And to be honest, Azure CLI hasn't really supported a clean uninstall through pip uninstall till the very recent release.

Gotcha. Thanks. I must have forgot I did that. I ran pip uninstall azure-cli to clean things up.
