More information:

If I run

tlmgr show fontspec

I get

package:     fontspec
category:    Package
shortdesc:   Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX.
longdesc:    Fontspec is a package for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX. It provides an automatic and unified interface to feature-rich AAT and OpenType fonts through the NFSS in LaTeX running on XeTeX or LuaTeX engines.
installed:   Yes
revision:    19649
cat-version: v2.0c
cat-date:    2010-08-01 19:08:30 +0200
cat-license: lppl1.3
collection:  collection-xetex

so the database is showing the correct version but if I actually check the fontspec version directly I get 2.0b. Could tlmgr have actually not updated the files?

Good Luck,
