psql --version always gives the version for psql (the client).
postgres --version is the server. If the above is correct you have a
very old server version and should consider upgrading it. In general,
newer clients will work with older servers (and vice-versa) but you
could run into various problems.
Note you can check the server version from the client (psql) using the
command "SELECT version();"
