[Haskell-beginners] how to update cabal?

I just installed the .dmg fore the Haskell platform.
When I run "cabal update" in terminal I get the following:

Note: there is a new version of cabal-install available.
To upgrade, run: cabal install cabal-install

I then ran "cabal -V":
cabal-install version 0.8.0
using version of the Cabal library

The latest version of cabal install is 0.8.2.  When I run "cabal install
cabal-install" it seems to work fine, without any errors but when I go back
and check i.e. "cabal -V" i still get version 0.8.0.

I tried "cabal list cabal-install":
   Synopsis: The command-line interface for Cabal and Hackage.
    Latest version available: 0.8.2
    Latest version installed: [ Not installed ]
    Homepage: http://www.haskell.org/cabal/

What am I missing?  It is really annoying that cabal update keeps telling me
about a new version of cabal-install that I can't actually get to work!
