Two remarks to explain this behavior:
516263 means US-MP120/2.0, 263th day in 1996 (October 31, 1996)

526061 means US-MP130, 61th day in 1996 (March 2, 1996)
526205 means US-MP130, 205th day in 1996 (August, 21, 1996)

(cf the FAQ for more information concerning the numbering system)

If you really have a MP130, 516263 should not have been installed on it
(and anyway, it would have refused to install), and if it did, the OS won't
work anymore.
If you have a MP120/2.0 (which I highly suspect), no 52xxxx software could
be installed.

Well, you can try to get rid of 516263 by removing all batteries for a
while (this would erase everything including first blocks of the Internal
Store where the update lies).

Second remark:
All system update install over the previous installed one. Hence, no need
to install previous update, just install the last one. (this is explained
in ther read me files).
