[Haskell-beginners] cabal update behaviour

these are the steps I followed to get Haskell installed in my machine:
The installation completed successfully, and gave me these instructions:
Now do "cabal update" to initialize the package list
But when I do, I get this message:
Note: there is a new version of cabal-install available.
To upgrade, run: cabal install cabal-install
Which I do, but after another "cabal update" I'm given the same
message, meaning that cabal-install was not actually updated.
Any ideas on why this is happening?
 Specs for my machine:
$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS
$ uname -a
Linux 2.6.32-33-generic #70-Ubuntu SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux
