The Sims 3 patch series tabulated

The base game, EPs, SPs, and Tools must be patched to the same level, when they first appear. Which means when a pack is first released, the minimum base game version has to be on the same row as that pack. Subsequent base game patches would change the level of your last-installed pack accordingly.

Exception is the Create-a-World tool. This program needs to be uninstalled each time there's a game patch that changes the level numbers. And you need to download a new version from thesims3.com site and install that new version. There's workaround4 in the Discussion tab in case circumstances prevent you from redownloading and reinstalling or if CAW is "broken", but this is the last resort. With a utility, you can just download the .exe and check first if it has been updated, before uninstalling old and installing new.
