Are you 100% sure? I mean these lines are long and can easily mistaken 
with the original ones on first glance. Is 
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.001001/updates_spamassassin_org where your normally resides? 
sa uses /etc/mail/spamassassin as the local rules dir when compiled with 
default options on Linux and sa-update downloads by default to 
/etc/mail/spamassassin/updates_spamassassin_org, but it won't use it since 
sa doesn't scan subdirectories for config files.
