yes and what surprises me is that the statement is wrong whatever the database it is ran against (since the ‘2.2’ is hard coded)

yes, this is likely. I upgraded my debian from wheezy to jessie just before doing the postgis upgrade. The script surely comes from an old wheezy deb package:

# ls -l /var/cache/apt/archives/postgresql-9.3-postgis-2.1-scripts_2.1.8+dfsg-5~97.git43a09cc.pgdg80+1_all.deb 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 365986 Sep 18  2015 /var/cache/apt/archives/postgresql-9.3-postgis-2.1-scripts_2.1.8+dfsg-5~97.git

here it is :
 POSTGIS="2.1.8 r13780" GEOS="3.3.3-CAPI-1.7.4" PROJ="Rel. 4.7.1, 23 September 2009" GDAL="GDAL 1.9.0, released 2011/12/29" LIBXML="2.8.0" LIBJSON="UNKNOWN" (core procs from "2.1.3 r12547" need upgrade) TOPOLOGY (topology procs from "2.0.3 r11128" need upgrade) RASTER (raster procs from "2.1.3 r12547" need upgrade)

note that I fixed the « need upgrade… » but still had the issue
