Linux mint maya outdated ISOs

I just installed Linux mint maya xfce on my new IBM thinkpad T430.  I downloaded the latest ISO from burned it to a DVD and went through the installation.  The DVD was about 795 MB in size and the installation went fairly smoothly.

Once the installation completed I did the obvious

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Boom this hits me now

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages have been kept back:

The following packages will be upgraded:
accountsservice acpi-support activity-log-manager-common alsa-base alsa-utils apt apt-transport-https apt-utils aptdaemon aptdaemon-data aptitude

snipped out a lot of stuff...

585 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 16 not upgraded.
Need to get 495 MB of archives.
After this operation, 25.7 MB of additional disk space will be used.

This is quite a bit of updates to download right after burning and installing from an ISO only an hour ago.  Not sure why the ISO has not been kept up to date.
