It's just warning.  Install as usual.  As it says, do not play Seasons untill after you've gotten all the updates, but you already have patch 1.50 so no worries.

I haven't seen this problem, but I'm not super tech-y.   I'd suggesting posting in Technical Forum on the Sims 3 website ( ), they're tech savvier and might be able to help.  Best of luck.
