This is because you install from repository (using apt-get). Packages are repositories are usually not updated ‘insta’ and you need to wait little bit before installing it using apt-get.

When I install nginx on new Droplet (Ubuntu 16.04) and run nginx -v:

nginx version: nginx/1.10.0 (Ubuntu)

To get around this you need to install from source. This is not straightforward as installing with apt-get but I think it’s not very hard. How To Install Nginx From Source (nginx.com). Building From Source (nginx.org). There is no DO tutorial for Ubuntu. I found old one for CentOS which you can read at How To Compile Nginx from Source on a CentOS 6.4 x64 VPS.
