This behaviour seems normal to me.
You overwrite the existing packages files by newer ones bypassing the package management system.
What you should do is either to find already packaged recent versions of what you need or build yourself new packages that you use to update your system.
A third alternative would be to configure the new packages to install on a different directory, so if you messed with the code, you do not break the whole system.
