Application Manager shows 'Install' next to apps already installed

I have been using CS6 apps as part of a Creative Cloud subscription since not long after CC was released. I have only installed the apps as part of CC.
However my AAM window shows a blue Install link next to apps (eg ID, PS, AI, Acrobat) which I use every day. (You can see ID CS6 in the background of the screengrab below.)
The only two apps which show up as installed are AE (which I downloaded a month or two ago) & LR5 (which I downloaded yesterday) and even that shows a grey 'Installation complete Launch app' message when I've already been using it.
Does this suggest that AAM isnt properly monitoring the update status of my apps?
How can I fix this?

Pete.Green:
I don't see the need to do this really. IF you want to you can, but they're the same application. I'd stick with what you already have installed.
Cool.
So assuming Pete and Jeff are on the same page is the basic advice to:
use the CC desktop app to monitor the update status of the remainder of my Adobe apps, and
simply keep an ear to the ground for any updates to LR and update LR from within the app itself (Help / Check for updates…)?
Jeff A Wright:
You can safely ignore the Adobe Application Manager at this point and use the Creative Cloud interface.  Also the normal Adobe icon will still be displayed for the time being when updates are available.  These will eventually be handled within the Creative Cloud application interface but I have seen the same Adobe icon on several of my upgraded computers already.
Jeff, was 'can safely ignore' intended to mean that I can choose to ignore AAM, or that I should ignore AAM? If an update is shown to be available via the AAM icon in OSX's menubar is a user meant to use AAM or CC desktop to update the apps? And if the update status of the 'production' apps is at odds in the 'management' apps (as it currently is on my computer) which should I trust?
Is AAM now simply an app which is intended to work in the background (and hence should I uncheck 'Notify me of new updates on the menu bar' setting in Preferences)? Is that is something that will happen down the road, but isn't ready yet?
Sorry for all the questions -- which I appreciate are veering a little into the academic rather than being strictly necessary (I can at least use my production apps at the moment) -- but I'm just surprised how confusing this all is. And I don't imagine I'm the only person who is confused.
The Creative Clud Desktop help page makes no mention of AAM, and the Install and Update Apps help page only seems to add to, rather than clear up, the confusion about how the two managment apps are meant to work together.
